  1. Flatulation jokes aside, Mel Brooks' High Anxiety is a hilarious romp through the genius of Hitchcock. My favorite scene is the phone booth, but I just think the whole movie is a riot.

  2. Firstly, thank you for this amazing course!!! Great contributions so far on this topic. A couple that I hadn't thought of that were mentioned, Night of the Hunter and Fahrenheit 451 great movies. Also, I agree that Hitchcock would've loved Fargo.
