The "Pretty Little Liars" executive producers have revealed the Alfred Hitchcock movie they're doing an homage to in the Season 3 finale -- after visiting "Vertigo" in Season 1 and "Psycho" in Season 2.

Marlene King tells Zap2it the incorporation of "North by Northwest" turned out to be even easier than they thought.

"Watch the movie. I think if fans pay attention to the journey that we're taking this year, and the things I've said about the journey that we're taking this year, you'll have several clues about how 'North By Northwest' is incorporated. It worked beautifully, actually," says King.

We've seen "North by Northwest" and we're wondering who the Pll version of Roger O. Thornhill is. In Nbn, Cary Grant is advertising executive Thornhill who gets trapped in a whirlwind, dangerous case of mistaken identity. He ultimately winds up dealing with foreign spies, battling it out atop Mount Rushmore and falling in love. »
