Lifeboat (1943) Easter Egg - Make Room for the Fat Man!

In a rare character study; Hitchcock adapted a short tale by John Steinbeck about survivors of a torpedoed merchant ship during WWII. The result was the compacted setting of the crowded "Lifeboat". A full length feature on a single set.

>>>> Did Hitch do a cameo? Yes, A clever one. On the back of the only paper available was a quarter page advertisement for "Reduco--The sensational new obesity slayer".
A before and after photograph of Hitch is plain to see. He even gives a testimonial-- under his name!

I believe Hitch originally wanted to do this cameo as a body floating by the lifeboat. He abandoned that idea, for reasons I have forgotten, and went with the newspaper ad instead.
