It's hot and the only thing that save me from sleepless nights is watching movies till late. Horror movies, old or new, do the best work - I've always thought horror movies and summer nights are a strong couple - but a bit of Hitchcock, works well too.
Yesterday evening I was reflecting about my favorite Hitchock movie and I ended up with...nothing! I mean, I really can't choose between Rear Window and The Man Who Knew Too Much (the 1956 version). I've seen them oh so many times...
Rear Window is probably the first "serious" movies I've ever watched (and I was just 7 or 8 years old!) and it's probably the movie I've watched the most in general (I think the second one is Dirty Dancing, but that's another story...). It's Grace Kelly at her best and the side little stories of the people "spyed" by James Stewart are great.
The Man Who Knew Too Much is simply fantastic, fun and intricate and who doesn't love Doris Day singing Que sera sera ?!
This morning while transferring files from the old to the new laptop (I'm almost done finally!), I found the pictures from Vanity Fair 2008 Hollywood Portfolio , called Hitchcock Classics that channels iconic moments from the director’s greatest hits
While I can't choose my first favorite Hitchcock movie, I have no doubt on the second place. It's all for The Birds.
After watching it, I've never looked at a seagull (or a pigeon, a raven, a dove...even a robin indeed!) the same way as before...
And you? What's your favorite?
