[Nicholas Bierzonski] "I am still blown away by the editing Mr. Hitchcock did with that shower scene. It still holds up today even though it was cut old school with a razor blade! I humbly bow before his mastery and prowess. This scene gives us all something to strive for and measure our own skills against. "

Yep. Especially since Hitchcock "did the cuts in pre-production."

He was mortally afraid that "the suits" would screw up his artistry, so he planned his shooting so carefully that, after each scene was shot, there was no footage available to reasonably cut it in any other way than he had planned it.

This is something to remember for filmmakers who are concerned about their productions becoming "lamp posts" for producers eager to mark their territory.
