  1. I think Stephen King would be excellent as a Collaborator because of his work with the macabre.
  2. I'm not sure but I think '''The long kiss goodnight;' would fit in this category because of the double chase.
  3. 1. Frenzy opens during the day with an aerial shot of London while The Lodger opens at night with a close-up of woman screaming. Frenzy clearly shows more technical advances than The Lodger. 2. well, HE starts with the aerial shot and brings us down to earth. The POV shot showing us what the crowd sees and the close-up of the speaker. 3. Well, I think.he is conveying that politics is going to play a role in this movie and it could get ugly. There will be a lot of mud slinging which is why I think the movies opens at a political rally.
  4. 1. well, She changes her appearance as well as her identity. It looks to me like she has problems with taking things that aren't hers. 2. Hitch uses Hermann's score to convey the fact that something is not right and things are going to get strange. 3. Personally, I thought his cameo was intriguing and I think that it meant that he was trying to be polite and not walk in front someone coming down the hall.
  5. 1. I think this scene would be the start of a romantic comedy because she pretends to work there so she can get to know him better and he just plays along with her. We learn that they are attracted to each other. 2. Hitchcock uses bird sounds to make the mood cheerful while the atmosphere is (I think) more friendly. 3/ The cameo of him walking his dogs was just that a cameo and I son't think it had any importance to the movie.
  6. I like this title design because of the way the title and names are split up witch I think symbolizes the personality of Norman Bates. Hitch is trying to convey that its still a work day and that she is having an affair on a long lunch break. I think that Hitch i trying to make the point that these two will be the main characters.This reminds me of Rear Window. Hitch pushes the bounds of censorship through the the fact that these characters are partially undressed/dressed.
  7. 1. Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint are both good actor/actress. I feel like while she is flirting with him he is just eating it up if you will (I know I would). 2.In this scene, The R.O.T matchbook is an important prop I think because it makes you think about "What is the O for?". 3. The soft music in the background as the sounds of the train rolling on the tracks, I believe has a soothing sound that kind of sets the mood for this scene..
  8. 1. According to the images and sounds of this sequence, I would assume the film would be about a man suffering vertigo show his POV when it occurs and the dizziness he feels. 2. The most powerful image to me is when they do the close-up of the eye widening and the spiraling image inside the pupil, I believe this to convey the fact that when you suffer from vertigo you get really dizzy from things spinning in your head. 3. I think that the precise timing between.both musical score and the images is extraordinary and it would be a sin to have any other musical score.
  9. I think, in this opening scene Hitch is trying to convey that there are many different types of people live in this small confined space and there's not much to do. I learned that Jeff is a clutz, He broke his leg while on the Job and his buddies signed his cast. Hitch gives us his stoy through the cast and I think there was a pic of his destroyed camera. Well, seriously I had the the feeling of an mobile spectater because I would be in the same predicament as Jeff onlyy his cast would come off. Its bee, a while since I've seen "Rear Window" but I would have to agree that "rear Window"is his best cinematic success,
  10. 1. Let's see there is the crossing of traffic of people in the train station, crossing of legs in the train car, and crossing of the tracks so three times. (Basically they're on the same track lol). 2. Bruno has more designer type apparel from his shoes to his tie while Guy has more of a conservative wardrobe. The camera angle is on Bruno's shoes first which tells me that he has more importance than Guy. 3. I think that Tiompkin's musical score sets the mood for the whole movie.
  11. 1. Hitchcock uses the POV shot from Alicia's angle and giving a mysterious persona to Devlin. 2. I think Hitchcock tried to convey that these two stars would eventually become colleagues through Close-ups. 3. I think this scene was both Challenging and rewarding for both their careers.
  12. In this scene Hitchcock has a musical score playing while the camera moves over the mess on the floor. The moving of the camera is similar to the camera moving up the long driveway in Rebecca. The musical is similar to The lady vanishes. I do agree that this is a typical Hitchcock opening because of the moving camera and the music score Lombarde and Montgomery have a unique kind of chemistry that makes them the most logical to play these characters my reasoning is because they give the type of performance that makes you feel like they genuinely care for each other.
  13. 1. All that money tells me he just pulled a job and he is contemplating his next move. He breaks the glass in frustration because he didn't want the lady to get mixed up in his problem. Ge decides to lead them on a wild goose chase sort of speak. 2. This film reminds me of the opening scene of The Killers where is laying on the bed waiting to get killed. 3. The Tiomkin score puts the ominous mood to the audience while there is a foreboding atmosphere to the picture.
  14. 1. Many of Hitchcock's prior films opened in public places with crowds gathered while Rebecca opens with a narrative to a secluded place and just one person. 2. I feel that the Hithcock touch is all over this scene starting with the clouds around the moon, moving the camera up the driveway,all the way to the view of the waves over the rocks over the cliff. 3. The house I Think plays a really important part as a character actor if you will that says something sinister happened here and someone needs to investigate it.
  15. 1. The scene opens to serene flute music playing in the background while the people are waiting vfor the train. 2. caldicott and charters hold the door for the lady and then sit on the bench. They are not sure what's being said so they walk ovrer to hear better. Then they talk among themselves about whats going on that in turn makes the audience aware of the situation. 3.The manager walks over to greet the ladies and focuses on Iris. Iris and the manager carry on a conversation while walking to the stairs (Hitch keeps the camera focused on them while they walk to the stairs)
