My list is already very tentative, as I feel that any of them could switch positions at any given moment, but here it goes:

  1. Foreign Correspondent (1940)
  2. Notorious (1946)
  3. Vertigo (1958)
  4. Strangers on a Train (1951)
  5. Shadow of a Doubt (1943)

Honorable mentions to The 39 Steps (1935) and The Lady Vanishes (1938). And just to add a little extra flavor, I expect potential threats to this list to be, besides the honorable mentions, Under Capricorn (1949) and The Wrong Man (1956), both of which I've actually seen, but not in quite some time.

I have an idea for a discussion. List your top 5 Hitchcock films as of now (even if you've never seen a Hitchcock film) and then revise or keep your rankings at the end of the course. If you have made changes by the end of the six weeks, please feel free to tell us the reason(s) for the change..

 My top 5 are :

 1) North by Northwest

 2) Rear Window

 3) Psycho

 4) The 39 Steps

 5) Vertigo
