Psycho (1960) – Where is the McGuffin?

What is a McGuffin?

“The device, the gimmick, if you will, or the papers the spies are after… The only thing that really matters is that in the picture the plans, documents or secrets must seem to be of vital importance to the characters. To me, the narrator, they’re of no importance whatsoever.” (Alfred Hitchcock)

Is Hitchcock de enige regisseur die een McGuffin als motief gebruikt? Vast niet.
