its possible to be bornwithout a belly button. its a complication at birth, i cant remember if its called an umbilical haemorage or an umbilical tumour. i remember hearing this discussion on the radio before and they had a man call in and explain how it worked. it happens when the child twists itself in the womb and the umbilical cord becomes tangled. I dont remember them saying whether or not hitchcock had one

A belly button is the stump of the umbilicus, and every single baby ever born has had an umbilicus - it can't develop without one.

It's possible that the umbilicus can be malformed, or even the eventual 'button' sewn up leaving only a scar, but everyone has had a shrunken umbilicus stump at one point or other, whether it turned into a recognisable 'button' or not.

It is a little known fact that Steven Spielberg doesn't have any feet. The balls of his heels are differently configured to most peoples' and resemble, more than anything, the delivery mechanism of a roll-on deodourant. His sense of balance is quite well developed though and so he is able to move around on his 'roller-ankles' perfectly adequately. The wish to conceal this notable fact is the reason he is relatively rarely seen on-camera and never in full-length shots.

That's not true. He's in a full-length shot in The Blues Brothers (he's the guy sitting on the desk in the Cook County Assessor's office at the end).

Do you mean the one with ball casters instead of feet?

Could be that's why they had him sitting on a desk, I suppose.

I'm a big blues brothers fan and I did not know that. Now, however, I do. :)

Perhaps Hitchcock himself started the story in jest, presenting himself as unique, sui generis. He would have his little jokes, you know.

Re Hitchcock, I see that Matt Lucas from 'Little Britain' has been cast as Alfred Hitchcock in a biographical movie to be made.
