  1. I guess I love the late Barry White and his love unlimited orchestra. I believe he may have the ability to direct an orchestra and provide the creativity to Mr Hitchcocks masterpieces if given the opportunity I love Vera wangs driven beautiful lines and I also think she is mature enough to allow for the beauty that Mr Hitch. would demand
  2. How does the opening of Frenzy differ from the opening of The Lodger? Feel free to rewatch the clip from The Lodger (Daily Dose #2) for comparison. The opening scenes of the Lodger and Frenzy are an interlocking perfectly fitted puzzle. (In my mind). Hitchcock provides genius continuity throughout the span of time I see the connection between the murdered woman. So obviously linked are the two dead bodies and of course the public reaction to the carnage. The woman are horrified. The men are first reacting then planning for their own families and safety. You can also feel the palpable p
  3. Marnie carries herself as a real lady. She has a bright yellow handbag which is loaded with money. We do not know where the money came from but it is easy to assume it is Ill gotten gain. She washes the dark dye from her gorgeous blonde locks and sashays away to begin her treck to her destination. Marnie puts the key down the grate. Forever hidden. 2. Hermanns melodies are in minor key haunting driving. They drive us on and on in elegance toward hunger for discovery. They are classic yet unique ---they call us toward yet another place and circumstance. 3. Hitchcocks cameo has now
  4. 1.Thos opening scene feels just like " Please don't eat the Daisies ". With Doris Day and others of that day. Lovely young attractive woman (Tippi Hedren) light heartedly bouncing down the street into the pet shop. Prior to entering she reacts briefly to a wolf whistle. Then quickly turns her attention on the gathering of the birds in the sky. They are flirting and interacting, smiling and teasing each other just like a comedy. Rod Taylor initially appears to have no clue that Tippi is not a salesperson. She tricks him and carries it further by selling him on a different bird . He was

We peep. We don't stop peeping. Long after the movie ends we are left with the everlasting feeling of peeping. We see Marion and her adulterous lover. They are beautiful and seductive. They are also sinful We peep at them. We peep at Normans massacre of Marion. We peep at Normans pain and suffering due to the sad, twisted upbringing. 3. Marion was an adulterous woman. She was the object of

  8. 1. First. I need to say that I never ever tire of this opening. I get super chills ever time. Bernard Hermann and his exquisite masterful music belong with our master of suspense. The score is an awakening that doesn't depart. The music is played simultaneously with the stark in your face "face up to this horror " fest. I'm there ! I'm in !!! I'm in from the very beginning. The very first note and graphic is solid purposeful as it expresses the evil the innocence that was polluted in Norman. (b&w) normans psyche. Etc etc etc.
  9. 1. Even at the level of dialogue the idea of two delicious Hollywood stars flirting creates instant meaning. The chemistry, the familiarity is immediately revealed . They speak the same verbal and nonverbal language. We automatically believe that combination is not only possible but believable. 2. The matchbook identifies him as Roger Thornhill ROT the 0 = nothing. He uses the matchbook and the lighting of her cigarette to introduce further flirting and to TURN UP THE HEAT. 3. The train sounds provide a continuum of the plot the soft music in the background enhances the romance a
  10. 1. Red lips- shifty eyes of a female are images of impending deception. The riveting blood red eye -the hypnotic swirl again implying the woman is somehow involved in death or causing suffering. This intro creates and fans the flame of curiosity. 2. Watching the distorted eye figure as a connection to a distorted point of view. They spring they gyrate then they turn red again. This reminds me of more blood more suffering maybe a prolonged suffering. The figures are a photo of Succumbing to the confusion or loss of self . 3. The music itself spins and whirrrs. It whirls with the shi
