    Default Good Evening (Hitchcock voice)

    Who here enjoys the likes of Alfred Hitchcock?

    What's your favorite movie, or even episode of the old Alfred Hitchcock presents?


    I kind of like Strangers on a Train and Vertigo.

    Psycho. Sorry, a Classic. Used his same crew from the TV show and if I'm not mistaken did it on a little more than the TV budget.

    There are several others I cannot remember very well. He was so good at doing things like the continuous take that was hailed as brilliant in Atonement. Hitchcock wanted to perfect it, sadly the fils he did it with weren't the greatest.

    The Birds, Rear Window (modern remake=Disturbia)...and a whole lot more.

    Let me just say...I went through a dark phase of my life and my movies revolved around Hitchcock and John Carpenter films.

    I love. François Roland Truffaut's Le cinéma selon Alfred Hitchcock was my school days favorite book.
    I wonder which to choose, though...

    Films
    Vertigo
    Rear window
    Dial M for murder
    Rebecca
    Marnie

    An episode from Hitchcock Presents

    I heard they're making a movie based around The Number 13.

    I'm not exactly sure what it's all about but it's supposed to center on Alfred Hitchcock during the production I think. And him getting caught up in a story that's similar to his style of movies.

    I don't know how good it'll be but it's pretty interesting that it's on The Number 13. I think that's the film that was never completed, and I think they lost the footage from it? I'm not sure what it was about, though.

    Does anyone know what it was about, or is it kind of lost in time?

    That's so weird that you say that, because I had a similar period with both filmmakers.

    As for the best Hitchcock, I think I can't choose between Rear Window and Vertigo and then I remember The 39 Steps... and then Strangers on a Train.. and then I'm really stuck! I can tell you that I flatly dislike The Birds and don't care for Marnie, not because it's bad, but because it is SO DISTURBING!

    Psycho and North By Northwest are probably my favourites. Haven't seen enough of his work though, I would like to see Marnie (him and Sean Connery sounds like an interesting combination) and Frenzy.

    HOW COULD I FORGET CARY GRANT!??! ARGH! This is too hard!

    And be warned: You may not be able to look at Connery the same way ever again after you see Marnie. He plays a really bad dude.

    Speaking of Hitch, I just saw Vertigo for the first time ever Great film. I sure didn't see that twist coming, and contrary to what some people say I liked that it came long before Jimmy Stewart puzzled it all together. Totally unpredictable thriller.
