    Just a few ideas. I haven’t got a deck with me right now…

    THE MOON – opening of REBECCA

    THE TOWER – end of VERTIGO

    WHEEL OF FORTUNE – climax of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

    WEALTH – diamond-in-the-chandelier in FAMILY PLOT

    THE MAGUS – Mr Memory in THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS

    Will try to think of more later.

  2. Sounds good! The worry is, if you actually used such a deck, would everybody get results like “You will have your eyes pecked out in a farmhouse,” or “You will fall off a famous monument”?

  3. Arthur S. Says:

    Or considering that the narration of REBECCA at the beginning is REBECCA herself,

    The reading of THE MOON will be, you will die and tell your story from beyond the grave.

    I never understood Tarot Cards, anyone willing to take pity on a dummy.

  4. David W would be the man for the job! He’s rather psychic. gave up doing Tarot readings because it was too draining.

  5. Russ Leech Says:

    Although tese comments were posted ten years ago, I thought you would be interested to learn that Chris Leech has produced a deck and key book of the Alfred Hitchcock Tarot. He is presently getting funding through kickstarter. He also has produced four other decks and key books… take a look.

  6. Thanks! That looks great. I’m glad somebody finally did something along these lines.
