Themes - taboo: nudity

Hitchcock enjoyed pushing the boundaries of what the censor would allow on screen.

  • Rear Window (1954) - the newly married woman wearing a flesh-coloured bodice; Hitchcock originally wanted Miss Torso to be topless in one scene
  • Psycho (1960) - Marion in her underwear; Marion taking her last shower
  • The Birds (1963) - Lydia is disgusted at the story of Melanie dancing naked in the fountain in Rome
  • Frenzy (1972) - Babs walking across the hotel room
