"I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach." --Alfred Hitchcock

Carole Lombard, who costarred with  Robert Montgomery in the 1941 film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 

I have no doubt that Hitchcock was correct in the above statement. However, Hitchcock did direct a few films that were more romance than suspense, including Mr. and Mrs. Smith, a 1941 comedy starring Robert Montgomery and Carole Lombard. Although the film is a comedy/romance, I watched the entire film waiting for and fully expecting a murder!
