Don't Know...ALFRED HITCHCOCK?
You really should know who SIR ALFRED HITCHCOCK (1899-1980) is! Sir Alfred Hitchcock, born Alfred Joseph Hitchcock, was a producer, director and performer. Movie buffs well acquainted with his talents enjoy looking for his cameo appearances in each of his productions.
A fine place to start is by viewing: North by Northwest (1959). It is a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, being accused of a murder one hasn't committed and a case of being mistaken for someone no one can find. Cary Grant plays an ordinary citizen, Roger Thornton, who must prove he isn't the man the spies want and isn't the murderer the police and CIA want. Alfred Hitchcock produced, directed and appears in this film. It is one of Grant's finest performances.
