Is this Hitchcock filmography accurate?

I copied most of this from the IMDB, with a few bits from books, dvd inserts, etc. Trouble is, most sources seem to think Hitch did 53 feature films, yet no matter what I do I always get 54! What's wrong?

He did make 53 features: Mary is a German-language remake of Murder!, made at the same time, on the same sets with different actors. It's not usually considered a seperate film in its own right.

If you want to be really completist, throw in the sixteen or so episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents that he personally directed...

'Bon Voyage' wasn't a documentary - as with 'Aventure Malgache' it was a fiction propoganda short.

Here you go: http://www.daveyp.com/hitchcock/foru...topic.php?t=13

...although I've only got 15 listed, so it looks like I'm missing at least one from the list. Most of them are available on the four R1 "Hitchcock Presents" DVDs that (I think) are now OOP.

If it has different actors, surely it should be considered a different movie?

Ah well, not important, just strange.

Edit: Trust me to reply to something someone said, 2 years ago

....also, there's two versions of Blackmail - one silent, one with sound. The two versions do have different footage from each other in places.
