Shamley Productions

Shamley Productions was an American production company, set up by Alfred Hitchcock and named after the British village of Shamley Green, where the Hitchcocks owned a country retreat.

The company oversaw the production of Psycho (1960) and the television productions of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

In August 1964, Hitchcock negotiated a new contact with Universal which saw him hand over ownership of Shamley Productions to the studio, along with the distribution rights to Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Rope, Rear Window, The Trouble with Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Vertigo. In return, the director became the 3rd largest shareholder in the studio.[1]
