    [Together With:] [Alfred Hitchcock.]
    Man Who Knew Too Much. Notes: February 1st, 1955. Two quarto leaves of production notes. Approximately 11 x 8.5 inches, on white paper, rectos only. Three hole-punches at left margin. A bit toned, paperclip markings to upper margin and center, two horizontal creases. Very good. These numbered paragraphs discuss the opening sequence, for example: "There is the sound of a gunshot. Louis moves back in; you couldn't actually swear he hurries. Bob comments it sounded like a revolver shot. Louis is quite positive it was a back-fire from a car. they [sic] dope the gasoline around her with cocoanut oil. Down the street a figure moves swiftly and furtively away from camera."
