Clocks are turned ahead, and we all need a nap. Thankfully, Monday is national Napping Day, celebrated every year after Daylight Savings kicks in. Pay attention to this one, ladies. Studies indicate we need more sleep than men. Check out this CBS report.
Napping Day is followed by — scare yourself to death day — if you can hum the theme to the Alfred Hitchcock hour, you know that this unassuming man was behind a lot of classic thrillers.
Hitchock teamed with Cary Grant on four films, and in “Suspicion,” 1940, he left everyone wondering if Grant’s character really was the bad guy. There was even an alternate ending. “Notorious,” 1946, “To Catch a Thief,” 1955, and “North by Northwest,” 1959, also starred Grant.
Fans also know Hitchcock appeared in nearly all of his films. A passerby in the background, a customer — but always in the background. See if you can spot him.
I’m a fan of naps and Hitchock, but it’s rare that anyone would nap after a Hitchcock film.
