hah, didn't know hitchcock had done a comedy - although that one does appear to revolve around a dead body!
although I've heard PSYCHO is supposed to be a black comedy as well...
Not many do, because on its first release here in the U.S., it is regarded as one of Hitchcock's few boxoffice failures. But it did well in Europe. Playing for an year and a half in France and an year in the U.K. and Italy.
It was also Shirley Maclaine's motion picture debut.
