Sir Alfred’s Prank

Alfred Hitchcock's home away from home on the Universal Studios backlot was bungalow 5195. Whenever he had a long night of filming or needed to concentrate on a script, this would be the place to find him.

With the introduction of the studio tour, the prankish Sir Hitchcock couldn't resist playing a joke on the thousands of tourists who visited Universal Studios each day. He put his famous silhouette in the window to trick guests riding the tram into thinking he was busy inside the bungalow.
