Alfred Hitchcock: Was the Master of the Macabre also master of the 'That's What's She Said' joke?

Posted on

Legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock was well known for having a finely honed — if very dark — sense of humor. But I never thought I would ever see him perform a version of the “That’s what she said” joke, until this afternoon when I watched a video of the Psycho auteur doing just that. In fact, the Huffington Post is claiming this is the earliest known recording of Michael Scott’s favorite gag. If you want harder evidence, then feel free to poke around.

Hey, that’s what she said!

Anyhoo, you can catch the clip after the break — and remember to tune in next week when we hope to present rare footage of Sergei Eisenstein goofing around with a fart cushion on the set of Battleship Potemkin.
