Alfred Hitchcock made one of my favorite movies of all time, 1954’s Rear Window. I sort of think of Mr.Hitchcock as the Tim Burton of that era (except better than Mr.Burton). I can’t say there is one thing that draws me to that movie specifically but it is the film as a whole. I think James Stewart & Grace Kelley are great in it as well as the rest of the cast. One of the things I love about it is that it shows everyday life and sometimes if you actually look at your neighbors and their habits you might be surprised at what is going on right under your nose. I feel as though Mr.Hitchcock really hit it out of the park when he made this film. Here are a few other films he made that I am a fan of as well. Some of these you may not be familiar with but he made so many more movies than just Psycho. I have tried to include a couple of the trailers. Enjoy!
Oh, one last thing…Mr.Hitchcock liked to make a cameo in his films so keep your eyes peeled when watching his movies!
1955 The Trouble With Harry (John Forsythe, Shirley MacLaine & Edmund Gwenn)
1948 Rope (James Stewart, John Dall, Farley Granger )
1958 Vertigo (James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes)
A master of his craft for sure. The “Alfred Hitchcock Theater” was a weekly treat on TV. I’ve never ever seen re-runs of them. I wonder if none were saved. So many of the old programs were lost :- (
It is sad. I guess AMC (American Movie Classics) has a foundation to save all these movies and shows that are sitting around dissolving in their tins. I hope they save them all!
