Watching To Catch a Thief right now.  It's a great movie, but I forgot how creepy it is to watch Grace Kelly drive like that, knowing how and where she died.  :(
That's one of my Hitchcock's faves and it's kind of underrated because no one really talks much about it when Hitchcock's discussions arise.

The romantic tension between Grant and Kelly is fantastic.

Ok, the Lad and I have watched nine Hitchcock films so far, and here's the ranking:

9. The Man Who Knew Too Much (dull, a simple kidnapping with no suspense whatsoever, and really bad makeup on the dark-skinned folks)
8. Sabotage (appreciate the artistry, but not very compelling)
7. Vertigo (excellent idea for a murder mystery, but a little too heavy-handed with the psychology, and slowwwwww pacing)
6.  Strangers on a Train (fairly dated in the corniest sense, but a really good idea executed as well as could be expected for its day)
5. North by Northwest(some less plausible bits, but still a good watch beginning to end)
4. Psycho (a chillingly good tomr)
3. Dial M For Murder (an almost perfect crime cleverly laid out and solved. Great pacing)
2. To Catch A Thief (great scenery, romantic tension, always moving along)
1. Rear Window (so simple, yet compelling from beginning to end)

From the Lad:  "I could watch Rear Window ten times in a row."

I don't really have a favorite. I do remember when (The Birds) came out. It scared the crap out of me. I avoided watching it for many years. It doesn't bother me now. :codger:

Rear Window,  then everything else.

I liked the birds but even as a kid it didn't scare me. I saw psycho as a teenager and unfortunately, I had the story spoiled for me (I knew what was coming) which kind of ruined it.  Great movie though. North by Northwest and Vertigo.  Saw each one time and don't really remember them all that well.

I have only seen those 5 Hitchcock movies.  I need to sit down and have a marathon one weekend when I don't have anything else to do.
Did you have the marathon then? How many have you seen now?

It was so long ago I don't remember much of it, except the airplane chasing Gregory Peck.  I do remember that it was very good!  I need to watch it again with an eye for the director's artistry?  I guess?

You can watch it any way you want it's a great film.

What else have you not seen? To Catch a Thief? That's Cary Grant again as a notorious cat burglar called THE CAT.

Actually, I do really like that one.  South of France location and all that; it is a good one!

I havent seen Frenzy! I'll have to watch it. I like Marnie a lot, one reason why is that I like Sean Connery! :lol:  But the writing kind of falls apart half way through or something. It starts out really good but then kind of loses the point. Maybe because it was the 60s and they couldnt be too specific about her watching her mom be a prostitute?? I dunno. I like to watch it when it comes on but not one of his top ones for whateber reason. Maybe its just me, or they put too many ads in on tv.
