Perfect, thank you!

You're enticing me to add railway travel to my agenda by reminding me how pleasant and enriching it can be. Entirely unlike NJT, which is closer akin to a holding cell at Rikers, except that it's usually broken and late
.
I haven't done such since 1976 or perhaps it was 1977, but a cross country jaunt by rail is an incredible way to travel. We should all have a chance to experience a sleeper car and dining on a train at least once in our lives! ;)

⇧ I know Hitchcock was making films since the '20s and was successful from the '30s on, but I didn't think he became a household name until the '50s, but clearly from the top pic's text, he was a household name by '43.

I think it was his TV show that made him known by my generation, but before TV, there was only movies and radio. Looking through his filmograhpy, I see titles of films from the '30's & '40's I've heard discussed, suggesting that they had brought him renown by that period. Among them -

The Man Who Knew Too Much - '34
39 Steps - '35
The Lady Vanishes - '38
Rebecca - '40
Suspicion - '41

And on it goes!

These apparently were milestones among popular entertainment which also garnered much critical praise.

Clearly he was and for the movies you note.

I'd add to the list another one of his I like from that era "Foreign Correspondent" from 1940.

The clothes in it are incredible too:

They are not at Fellows' level, but I've enjoyed the style/artistry of the recent illustrations very much.

Agreed, I find the actual clothing, and illustrations of it, less enjoyable as the '40's progress, but these are very nice illustrations.
