Treehouse Of Horror XX: The Simpsons Do Hitchcock On Halloween Special (VIDEO)

The Simpsons celebrated their twentieth Halloween special last night with an ode to Hitchcock. The segment was called "Dial M for Murder," but the plot more closely mirrored that of "Strangers on a Train" in which two men decide to kill each other's "loved" ones. In the chase scene, the music from "North by Northwest" played, and they pushed a likeness of Hitchcock (who always appeared in his own films) off Mt. Rushmore, where Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint scrambled for freedom at the end of that film.
