Happy birthday to Alfred Hitchcock! The English movie director, and one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, was born 116 years ago today.

Although he passed away at the age of 81 in 1980, his vision and creative contributions to film will never be forgotten. Hitchcock was one of the few who pioneered the horror film genre and some of his most famous (and frightening) works include Dial M for Murder, North by Northwest, The Birds, and Rebecca. And those who remember Janet Leigh's famous shower seen from Psycho know just how Hitchcock earned his title as "master of suspense"! (The actress is pictured above with the director.)

And so, in honor of Hitchcock’s life, legacy, and ability to make us squirm in our seats and scream in terror, we pay tribute to a man and a few of his most iconic leading ladies.
