It comes from Ariel's song in The Tempest. " Full fathom five thy father lies, / Of his bones are coral made, / Those are pearls that were his eyes: / Nothing of him that doth fade, / But doth suffer a sea-change / Into something rich and strange."

Hitchcock doesn't make a cameo appearance in this film.

Several distributors have released Rich and Strange (1931) onto VHS and DVD, often with a bad picture and unintelligible sound. This film would seem to be in the public domain, in which case any distributor could legally sell copies without paying royalties. Beware. Many small distributors market copies of public domain films with poor picture and sound. Others are more prestigious and deliver good transfers of the best available prints. Shop around.

The Alfred Hitchcock Box Set (The Ring / The Manxman / Murder! / The Skin Game / Rich and Strange) and The Early Hitchcock Collection (Region 2, 9 films) both have restored versions of this film.
