20 Films Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

20

Family Plot (1976)

Hitch's final film uses both humor and suspense to tell a tongue-in-cheek tale of a rich lady's eccentric foibles and the trouble they cause. Stars abound in this film, including Bruce Dern and William Devane, but Hitch had originally wanted the likes of Liza Minnelli and Al Pacino in the picture. If you look closely, there is a street sign in Family Plot that reads "Bates Ave.," a nod to Psycho, one of the many films that made this director one of the most influential men of the 20th century.
