Hitchcock. Hitchcock.

From trivia &rarr:

The plot calls for a man (Daniel Gélin in the role of Louis Bernard) to be discovered as “not Moroccan” because he was wearing black makeup. The makeup artists couldn’t find a black substance that would come off easily, and so they painted the fingers of the other man (Jimmy Stewart) white, so that he would leave pale streaks on the other man’s skin (according to Patricia Hitchcock, this idea was suggested by Daniel Gélin).

It was during the making of this film, when she saw how camels, goats and other “animal extras” in a marketplace scene were being treated, that Doris Day began her lifelong commitment to preventing animal abuse.
