Thanks to the awesomeness of Netflix, we’ve been watching a steady diet of Alfred Hitchcock films. I don’t know how we’ve missed them all. It’s such a pleasure to watch well-conceived, acted, directed, written, and filmed movies! In the process, we’ve become familiar with MacGuffins, icy blondes, staircase shots, mistaken identities, incompetent police figures, and a whole generation of leading men and women: Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Doris Day, Cary Grant…

So far we’ve seen: Saboteur, Suspicion, Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, Shadow of a Doubt, Vertigo, North by Northwest, I Confess, Rebecca, The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956 version), To Catch a Thief, The Trouble with Harry, Family Plot, Spellbound, Rope, and Strangers on a Train. My favorite so far… probably Strangers on a Train, though Shadow of a Doubt and Rebecca would be right up there. And we’ve still got lots more to see!

If you’re tired of the same old stuff, check these out. They have aged well.
