That Hitchcock was such a kidder

Turner Movie Classics has been showing reruns of The Dick Cavett Show. I happened upon an episode last night in which Cavett was interviewing Alfred Hitchcock. After showing a scene from Hitchcock’s movie Frenzy (which was new at the time), Hitchcock went on to describe the scene in the most bland fashion possible. The scene featured a corpse falling out of a potato sack in the back of a truck. He concluded the description by saying that the point of the scene was that the corpse improved the taste of the potatoes.

And I am feeling that much better about my own sense of humor.
