  1. ...are all better movies than Vertigo. James Stewart is fantastic as always, but the movie just drags in a way the other three don't. I don't really know why people call it Hitchcock's masterpiece. I didn't feel compelled, just bored.
  2. For those of us living in the New England area, WGBX (PBS) out of New Hampshire will be showing the 1997 miniseries Rebecca on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at 9 p.m. I won't be able to tear myself away from the Kens Burns documentary The Vietnam War, but maybe the station will re-broadcast it. Just for me!!!
  3. What were the artistic influences on what some critics have called Hitchcock's most personal film: Vertigo? "The real reason was that I wanted to convey the dreams with great visual sharpness and clarity, sharper than the film itself. I wanted Dali because of the architectural sharpness of his work. Chirico has the same quality, you know, the long shadows, the infinity of distance and the converging lines of perspective." --Alfred Hitchcock, from his 1962 interview with François Truffaut Hitchcock was a collector of modern art and his private collection included several
  4. Here are a couple experimental films that make use of both Hitchcock's and Gus Van Sant's versions of Psycho. I thought some might find them interesting. First up is Christoph Draeger's film Schizo (Redux), in which he overlays the same scenes (prelude, shower murder, and aftermath) from both versions, Since the two versions don't sync up perfectly, a strange echo effect is created (both aurally and visually) which after a while I found strangely fascinating. I suspect if extended too long, this effect would wear off, but I managed to stay engaged for all twenty-or-so minutes of the clip.
  5. Dr. Edwards has mentioned Truffaut's interview book with Hitchcock quite a few times, so I thought there might be some people interested in these recordings. This is a collection of about 12 hours worth of the original recordings that went into the making of the fabled tome. In many ways, I think these recordings are much richer. The book, as most English readers know it, has basically been through two translations, from the original French/English hybrid to pure French, and from there to pure English. This sort of translation upon translation can homogenize or bland out any work. Also, the bo
  6. Just saw the version of The Pleasure Garden that Open Culture links to. It's the one that the Daily Dose was clipped from, the one with Japanese subtitles overlaid. It runs only about an hour.* According to the IMDb, there are other versions that range from 75 to 92 minutes. Does anyone know anything about the availability of these (apparently) more complete versions? *This version starts with the credit, "A Rohauer Film Collection Release." Raymond Rohauer was notorious for claiming the rights to films that he didn't have clear title to and would even re-edit public domain films
  7. Although it's only the beginning of a very long course, filled with over 40 of Hitchcock's films, just as notable should be the films that are not being shown over the course of the next month. Whether for lack of time, lack of rights, lack of materials, or lack of interest, there are 13 films directed by Alfred Hitchcock that will not be shown. (This is assuming that the list of films that TCM provided is comprehensive.) They are as follows: The Pleasure Garden (1925) The Mountain Eagle (1927) [this film is lost, which explains its absence] Easy Virtue (1928) Champagne (1928) Juno and t
