Did you know that in 1965, a certain Rudolf Histcock directed a Pinoy spy film, Scarface at Al Capone: Espiya sa Ginto? Who really is Rudolf Histcock? Yes, Histcock is the pen name of top ace comedian Dolphy, (Rudolf from his real name Rodolfo and Histcock from the Hollywood film director Alfred Hitchcock). This is probably Dolphy's first uncredited directorial job.
