Hitchcock's Films

Stage Fright (1950)

Marlene Dietrich's "The Laziest Gal in Town" was rehearsed and filmed at the Scala, along with the final sequences in the film.

According to Gary Giblin, Hitchcock was insistent on filming as much as possible on location rather than resorting to studio sets back at Elstree Studios.[1]
