Way back on September 7, 2017 Fred Shapiro asked about a remark
attributed to Alfred Hitchcock. Participants in the ensuing discussion
uncovered valuable citations. Now the Quote Investigator website has
an entry.

Great thanks to top researcher Fred Shapiro whose inquiry led QI to
formulate this question and perform this exploration. Special thanks
to research colleagues Donna Halper, Barbara Schmidt, and Peter Reitan
who identified crucial citations beginning in 1963. QI found the “San
Francisco Examiner” citation.
