It has been a while, but isn't he in a crosswalk when Marilyn Crane is leaving town after stealing the money?

ROPE (1948): His trademark can be seen briefly on a neon sign in the view from the apartment window.
He's actually in "Rope" twice. As a neon sign image; and walking along the sidewalk just after the opening credits.

Awesome list! I didn't realise he was in all of his early British pictures as well.

So did Hitch have a cameo in every film he directed? That looks to be the case.

He did indeed, beginning with The Lodger, in which he had to fill in for an absent extra. Ever since, he decided to throw himself into each. If you notice, the later on in his career, the earlier his appearances in the films. People became so transfixed on finding Hitchcock, that they begin to not pay attention to the movies, but instead played "Where's Waldo?".

He even shows up in Lifeboat. Although it's a tough setting to pull off a cameo, Hitch does it.

Extremely clever appearance - I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen this, but it's a gem. Let's just say that the entire picture takes place in a lifeboat, so there aren't really any opportunities for Hitch to stroll by in the background!

They don't have captures of all of them, but if you click on the text list it lists every Hitchcock-directed film.

Psycho

He is wearing a cowboy hat and waiting at a crosswalk - when Janet Leigh is in the real estate office.
