When Alfred Hitchcock was on Coronation Street

This week sees the 55th anniversary of the original US release of Alfred Hitchcock's seminal film Psycho.

Time then, to resurrect this wonderful image of Mr H on the Coronation Street set.

This photograph of Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) peering through the doors of the Rovers Return in Coronation Street was taken in June 1964 by Joe Darby for the Daily Herald.

The caption read: 'While visiting a friend at Granada Television studios in Manchester, film director, Alfred Hitchcock, peeps through the doors of Coronation Street's famous local, the Rovers Return'.

 Sidney Bernstein (1899-1993) had worked with Hitchcock on 'Rope' (1948) and 'Under Capricorn' (1949) and went on to become a co-founder of Granada Television.
