Favorite Hitchcock film?...

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what everyone's favorite Hitchcock movie was. I'd have to say that for me, North by Northwest and Rear Window tie. Predictable, I know. :) How about everyone else?

I also like rear window and vertigo. Maybe I just like jimmy stewart or maybe him and hichcock just made a really good team.

Oh boy another one of those "do I like Child 1 better than Child 2!!!!" I would say, "North by Northwest followed (or neck and neck) with Psycho.

I love so much of Hitchcock's work, that the answer seems to change from year to year. I will go with 'Strangers on a Train.' Ask me again next year and it will probably be something else......

The 2 disc special edition of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN coming in September by WB is highly anticipated. WB always does a great job on these sets!

Thanks Edgecliffd, for the heads up on the STRANGERS ON A TRAIN dvd. The only copy I have of the film is one I taped from TCM. I wasn't aware of the upcoming 2 disc set and will definitely check that out! Again, thanks!

hmm, that is good news.

 

 

gonna have to say it...NOTORIUS......always had a thing for Ingrid Bergman(stunning-ravishing woman, she was)......plus I think it's Cary Grant's best performance next to North By Northwest...

Hey, give me a break, nickdimeo! I'm new to this forum! Besides, I wasn't "in doubt," I was just wondering! (Don't worry, I'm not really insulted-- I know you meant it in good fun. :))

moviegeek3000 - I have to agree with your choice. Notorious is my favorite Hitchcock film. I loved the plot and performances and especially Cary Grant. The ending (without giving it away if any of you haven't seen it) is very memorable.

Thought 4-certain I would see Mongo, ML & a few other(s) on this baby!? Anyway, I see 1946's superb Thriller "Notorious" (RKO) seems to be favorite of most that have voted/participated here. I gotta' submit a few critics-(a few are pen-pals, some not) L. Maltin-(1935's "39 Steps" is his fav. Hitch flick)/ Ebert-("Notorious") & I believe the sadly missed, by this co-OSCAR pundit & movie reviewer anyway, Gene Siskel also barely cited "Notorious"-(many, many, an article has been written about tracking shot of key to basement sequence!)

My own & I had chance to see my top 2 fav Hitchcock pictures in a Theatre as well>1958's trance-like:"Vertigo"-(also, arguably *B. Herrmann's finest score & Saul Bass' best artwork on it's credits!)

Close behind & more entertaining, but not as superb in some ways>1954's "Rear Window"-(my own personal pick as 1 of cinema's all-time greatest sexual close-up scenes>*Grace Kelly's debut scene in film, waking up a sleeping *Jimmy Stewart)>(WOW! What a shot)

For the record Alfred himself picked 1943's "Shadow of a Doubt" as his finest movie! Thank You
