Title: Alfred Hitchcock in Blackmail (1929)

Description: Film director Alfred Hitchcock (Alfred Joseph Hitchcock; August 13, 1899-April 29, 1980), riding on a train, second from left, and holding a book, in a cameo appearance in his 1929 film production of Blackmail. Sitting at right are the stars of the film, John Longden (November 11, 1900-May 26, 1971), center, and Anny Ondra (Anna Sophia Ondrakova; May 15, 1902-February 28, 1987), right. Hitchcock was to uphold the tradition of appearing in cameo roles in his films, which caused audiences to look for him with each new film. He stated that he made his first cameo appearance as "a gag," but the "actor" in him (frustrated or not) most probably demanded such appearances. Further, and this he knew from the beginning, those appearances were indelible Hitchcock imprimaturs fixing his singular authority to each and every film bearing his distinguished name. Longden plays the role of a rather unsympathetic detective, at Hitchcock's design as he feared police all his life. Ondra is a victim, as well as a killer, the kind of lethal beauty Hitchcock also feared. His use of trains, such as in this film, can be found in many of his productions, trains being his favorite mode of transportation, but one where mystery and strange happenstance lurked from car to car and where uncertain and dangerous destinations loomed.
