Alfred Hitchcock will not wear a Halloween costume

Alfred HitchcockI love seeing celebrities dressed up for Halloween. Some of them go all out and look rather crazy. A lot of celebs don't wear anything because they don't want to mess up their hair or be caught dead in anything but Prada. Once in a while a celeb that doesn't go the costume route will put on a mask, like Elvis Presley in this photo. It's one of many photos that The Daily Beast has in a new Halloween gallery.

Alfred Hitchcock doesn't really have a costume, more like a prop. You can almost hear what he said to the crew. Look, I'll stand behind this atrocious pumpkin structure and hold a broom, but I am not going to wear a costume.

Looks like it was shot on the set of Alfred Hitchcock Presents maybe (it was 1958)?

Other celebs featured include Truman Capote (mask only), Richard Nixon (campaigning in 1960 with no costume but standing next to a kid dressed as a ghost), and Three's Company star John Ritter and magician Doug Henning. Henning doesn't really look much different than he did in his usual clothing. Probably the same reason Cher isn't in this pic with Sonny and Chastity.

This is my favorite. Al and Tipper Gore!
