Your Favourite Top 5 Alfred Hitchcock Movies


Recommended Posts

In no particular order: Shadow Of A Doubt. Notorious. Rear Window. North By Northwest. The Wrong Man.


As an aside, he is getting very popular again if my cable "OnDemand" is any measure. At this moment (off the top of my head) I can get "Rear Window", "The Birds", "Notorious", "Saboteur", "Young and Innocent", "The Man Who Knew Too Much", "Rope", and "Vertigo." There may be one or two more. "Psycho" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (the latter courtesy of TCM) just expired.

There aren't too many I don't like - The Trouble With Harry is one of my least favorite. Edmund Gwenn's hair played too prominent a part in that movie.


But the early ones appeal to me, like Sabotage, Secret Agent, The Lady Vanishes, and Saboteur.

Got to agree with you "The Trouble with Harry" sucked. The most interesting part of the film is when John Forsythe cannot pay for a full pack of cigarettes so he takes a sissor and cuts the pack in half and pays for only half a pack and says he'll buy the other half later. They loved this film in France if thats any gage of how this film is. The most interesting fact was it was Shirley McLaines debut film.
