Time for new post in this thread.

 

I have added a Favourite Hitchcock actor male or female in the Favourite Performances thread so I can have fun with Hitchcock besides the "serious" main category themes.

 

 

For 1934 my choice was Peter Lorre in The Man Who Knew Too Much.

 

 

1934 continues to be the theme until this Sunday.

 

I will add my choice for each year's winner of this made up award in this thread as well as in Bogie's thread because, well, I love Hitchcock and I want this thread to be up to date.

Ethel Barrymore in "The Paradine Case"

Thanks for these choices.  Isn't it funny how JLR played Cary Grant's mother in North By Northwest and Grace Kelly's mother in To Catch a Thief.

 

By the way, I meant to post this here:

 

ClassicMovieRankings has completed his \Ultimate Movie Rankings page on Mr. Claude Rains.

The 1935 switch in the Performance thread will not happen until tomorrow morning.

 

 

But it is 11pm Pacific here, so here is my choice for 1935 Best Performance in a Hitchcock movie, male or female:

 

Wylie Watson as Mr. Memory in The 39 Steps.

 

Man, that is a lot of information he had to memorize.

ALERT!!!!!:

 

One of Hitchcock's two WW II shorts is being shown Saturday night/Sunday morning at 1:00 a.m. E.S.T.

 

"Bon Voyage" (1944) In Black and White:  Was made for/by British Ministry of Information for Phoenix Films.

 

Can only find brief clips from "Bon Voyage' on YouTube--not entire film.

 

Film is 26 minutes long--stay up or tape.

 

Information is from Patrick McGilligan's 2003 biography of Alfred Hitchcock.

 

Edit:  Is now a nice article about BV on TCM's webpage on it.

"AVENTURE MALGACHE" (1944) is on YouTube--however it is subtitled in French and the film is French language.  For all interested, check it out!  French II is just a memory for me, and I still got the message of the film, LOL.

 

 

I've only seen it in French too.

Lifeboat (1944) because I love Tallulah Bankhead (I named my 1987 Bronco 2 after her lol).

 

Also, one that is less talked about is Stage Fright (1950) with Jane Wyman and Marlene Dietrich. Jane's character is basically hired to pretend to be an assistant to Marlene's character in order to spy on her. I don't remember too much about this one, though, only the ending.

I love Lifeboat.  It has my favourite Hitchcock cameo.  And I have seen few of Tallulah's films.  She is a fun actress.

 

Stage Fright is a fun film.  I know it is less known than others.  I always remember the scene with the blood on the dress every time I think of it.

Young and Innocent is one of those films that I've seen but can't recall a single thing about. I couldn't even begin to describe the plot, or tell you who was in it.  :(

 

 

Well, I happen to own a copy of it on VHS, that is why.

 

Nova Pilbeam recently died.  This is the only movie that I could name off the top of my head that she did because I don't really know her career that well.

 

It involves the popular Hitchcock theme of a man wrongly accused who has to go on the run.

 

At the beginning of the movie we see a couple arguing.  The man has a tick in his eye which should make it easy to identify him once he kills his wife off screen.

 

We see the woman dead and strangled.  The leading man finds her.  Everyone  assumes he did it.  He must find the killer who took his coat in a shelter as the belt was used.

 

He runs away from the police and meets Nova Pilbeam who happens to be the daughter of a policeman......

Thanks for your list Spence.

 

I've seen all of the films you mention.

 

My favourite Hitchcock movie of all time is Rear Window.  So far, it is the only Hitchcock movie I have seen on the big screen.  My Mom and I had to drive into Vancouver to see it.

 

I don't watch Vertigo as often as I used to watch it.  It is a well-made film, but as suspenseful as it is, I always end up feeling sad for Scotty at the end.
