From the sublime to the ridiculous.

Actually, that was on the "North by Northwest" set, and they're looking up Eva's dress.

The photo was actually taken on the set of The Nutty Professor, Hitchcock dropped by while taking care of some business at Paramount, and suggested that Lewis have Buddy Love kill off Stella Stevens partway through the picture.

In the interest of all accuracy (though somehow Stephen's account sounds just plausible enough), it is my understanding that this photo was taken during the production of "To Catch a Thief". The fact that Hitchcock had gone on a bit of a diet before that shoot and is looking somewhat more svelte here tends to support this conclusion.
