Hey, Alfred: Hitchcock's Cameo Appearances!
Alfred Hitchcock began making cameo appearances in his films purely by accident. In an early film, the cast needed one additional actor so he decided to play the small part himself. That was the beginning of a tradition that lasted throughout his directorial career. The list below documents Hitchcock's appearances.

Whatever Happened To Grace Jones?
Some years ago, I frequented Limelight, a dance club on the upper northwest side of Atlanta. On one particular Saturday afternoon, the place was charged in anticipation of a rare live performance by Grace Jones, the contralto pop diva. It was an exciting time for those of us who loved to dance because disco was still alive and kicking, having not yet seen its full demise.

Rat Pack Lexicon
The Legendary Rat Pack
In the early 1950s, Frank Sinatra and his crew had been a part of the Holmby Hills Rat Pack, a Hollywood drinking group that gathered around Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall (it also included Judy Garland, Sid Luft, Swifty Lazar, Jimmy Van Heusen, David Niven and Kay Thompson). When Bogart died in 1957, Sinatra took over. Most of the original members quit and the new group formed around Frank's friends, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop, and Sammy Davis, Jr. Peter Lawford joined later. On the fringes of the central group were others like Shirley McLaine, Angie Dickinson, Juliet Prowse, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh (the women were never official members of the Ratpack).
