Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) was a British Thriller/Mystery director who has long been regarded as one of the greatest movie directors of all time.[note 1] He achieved his career breakthrough in 1938 with The Lady Vanishes, followed by 1939's Jamaica Inn. For all his accolades, he was nominated for Best Director five times and never won, only ever receiving the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 1968.
He also successfully crossed over to television with his hit anthology series Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
Countless directors have been inspired by him or outright copied him to varying results. His style is so iconic that it spawned the word Hitchcockian.
Well, every director worth anything over the past 80 years to start.
While AO3 has several stories based on his works, he himself is only a character in one story.
