The 39 Steps (1935) - Hitchcock's cameo

Hitchcock's cameo in The 39 Steps (1935) occurs about 7 minutes into the film.

As Richard Hannay (Robert Donat) and Miss Smith (Lucie Mannheim) leave the music hall, they climb on the 25A bus to Portland Place. Hitchcock and screenwriter Charles Bennett walk in front of them and the director throws away some litter.

The bus carries a side advertisement for The Co-operative Permanent Building Society, whose head office was located in Oxford House, London. The front of the bus carries an advertisement that can only be partially seen, but ends with "...THE HOLLYWOOD LION".
