I have been a Hitchcock fan for many years, but this is the first time I've participated in any kind of "group appreciation". With that being said, I will comment that I primarily noticed a common Hitchcock theme after watching the "Pleasure Garden" clip. The obvious voyeurism is played out in a comical, yet somewhat creepy tone. Reminiscent of the voyeuristic scenes in "Rear Window", "Psycho", "Vertigo"...is a common theme Hitch uses, allowing the audience to involuntarily participate in this guilty pleasure (?).
I am not a big fan of silent films, but look forward to expanding my app
