So which two titles are germane? What is the common thread? I was going to say that they have all directed adaptations from well known playwrights like Ira Levin (Polanski, Lumet), Anthony Shaffer (Mankiewicz), Frederick Knott (Terence Young), but that would ultimately be a much longer list of directors. I am not there yet.

Anastasia (Litvak)

The Bad Seed (Leroy)

Deathtrap (Lumet)

No Highway in the Sky (Koster)

Rosemary's Baby (Polanski)

Sleuth (Mankiewicz)

The Spiral Staircase (Siodmak)

Wait Until Dark (Young)

He would've done a great job on Wait Until Dark. Actually, The Bad Seed seems to be up his alley. The villain hidden by her veil of seeming innocence in the guise of the "perfect little girl". Do you know why he passed on these, Mr.Wright?

Lol, the way you wrote it, it sounded just like Cary Grant.

 

Ok, here is a line from a Hitchcock movie. Name the movie.

 

?Oh, I was carried away by her, enchanged by her, as everyone was.?

No, I don't, unfortunately.

I think Hitch would have been a good fit for most of those films, but I cannot see him at the helm of "Anastasia." Also wasn't "Deathtrap" a little late for him? By the time it finally came out he had been dead for 2 years.
