I have always enjoyed Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock's on TV re runs.

I have to agree with your assessment. Strangers on a Train and Dial M for Murder were interesting Hitchcock films, but they did go a little too far with "artistic license." My two favorites are Rear Window and Niagara! :thumbsup:

Niagara wasn't directed by Hitchcock, it was Henry Hathaway. Great film nonetheless!

Has anyone seen Mr. & Mrs. Smith (not the one with Brad and Angie)? It's a rare bird for Hitch, a comedy starring Robert Montgomery and Carole Lombard.

"I'd give five bucks to see that cat take a sip of that soup."

When it comes to Hitchcock, one of my very favorites is The Trouble With Harry. It's a rather lighthearted film with BEAUTIFUL New England scenery and a fun plot full of quirky characters.

Don't believe I have ever seen a Hitchcock movie.  I've intended to see Vertigo for some time now.  I believe it was filmed in one single shot without panning away.  Have to see if it's available to watch somewhere.

I am a rabid Hitchcock fan and have seen Strangers on a Train and Dial "M" for Murder. I agree that neither was among his best. He did put out quite a few quick cheap ones to make like that, presumably to make a quick buck. But Psycho, Vertigo, and the other major films more than made up for this in my opinion.

I love Alfred Hitchcock.  Rear Window is a great film and my favorite film of his.

Love Hitchcock films.   I believe I have seen them all several times.  If I find one on TV I stop whatever I"m doing to watch.   To this day when there are a lot of blackbirds in my yard it gives me the chills.  Great movies to watch on a rainy day.

I am sure I have seen both but it has been a very long time.  My favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie will always be "The Birds".  When I was young I thought that was the scariest movie ever but now compared to modern movies it would be considered mild I guess.

I absolutely agree. I think I mentioned it somewhere. It was Shirley Maclaine's first film. Not a weak character in the bunch.

Hilarious!

While I love "The Birds," two things bothered the crap of me about that movie. First, that green suit was lovely, but by the end of the movie, I was sick of it. Second, I thought Suzanne Pleshette should have been lead. She's the better actress and far more beautiful than Hedren. But Hitch loves his blondes.

I don't think Hitchcock needed to make a quick buck. I don't see him as being one to sell out. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt. I think that sometimes, a director tries to spread their wings and do something different, sometimes, it works, sometimes, it doesn't.
