I haven't watched this in so long so I'm going to keep it kind of fresh. Mr. Green

Actually, I don't think I've seen this in over 15 years. Shocked

I'm trying to remember exactly when it was but it's been about that long. There was one summer where I decided to rent all of his movies and watch them. Some of them I haven't seen since then while others I've seen multiple times. This one of the ones I haven't seen since. Frenzy too.

Actually,, I've never even seen Topaz. Shocked I must watch that soon. Wink

it's not great but still a good movie... Hitchcock wasn;t able to film the ending that he wanted, it kept going back and forth between him and the studio so it seems a little flat at the end....but there are some beautiful visuals in it.

Did you ever see the documentary on Hitchcock from a few years ago? They used to show it on Starz and Encore a lot. It was narrated by Kevin Spacey. I always thought it was good and it showed some of the hardships and triumphs of him. And they showed how towards the end it was tough for him.

I wish it was out on DVD but to my knowledge it isn't. I was hoping they would have included it in the box set but no luck there. Weeping openly

I think we're alone tonight. Wink

One more minute. Are you ready?

I prefer a short one to those that seem to go on for 3 year and tell you nothing about the plot or even the tone of the film

I looked at one once and it said,"What are you lookin' at, bitch?" I never looked at another one again.

I always loved the openings to Hitchcock's films. Especially Psycho and Vertigo.
