Q says:
POM,

I appreciate the not voting down films you haven't seen (I even did it yesterday, abstaining from a downvote), but I have a question: Are you attempting to watch some of the others? They are really great! Try Netflix or the instant Amazon stream (I haven't used this myself, shoddy internet connection and all, but I hear it's not bad). We don't want ol' Vertigo to get an unfair advantage!! :)

CJ,

I'm not sure what you were voting here. Did you mean to give Vertigo 2 minus votes?

+2 North by Northwest--one of the screen's great entertainments, one of the most purely enjoyable films ever made, and possibly Hitch's most influential single film.

No downvotes today.

PoM: Everyone will have a different take on essential Hitch after Vertigo and Psycho--the latter being not a personal favorite in the Hitch canon. I would say, in chronological order, start sampling with:

Foreign Correspondent
Notorious
I Confess
Strangers on a Train
Rear Window
North by Northwest

Q: I may watch one today, but that's only because I'm not extraordinarily busy with work. And even after, I'll probably still be extremely biased in favor of Vertigo.

I don't really have much access to Netflix to my home, so I have to stream these days. The ones in my Instant Queue are The Lady Vanishes, Young and Innocent, The Manxman, the Alfred Hitchcock Presents series, and Murder! Which one should I start with (asking William for his opinion as well). There is a good chance I'll watch one today, and I'm even rejecting an invitation to a Harvard frat party so I can get my work done and watch a movie.

By the way, anyone up for another game like this but with Stanley Kubrick? I'll be more than happy to host.

>Q says:
"Jon, can you clarify these numbers? They don't seem to add up, and I don't want to vote wrong."<

I'm not counting one person's attempt to infiltrate this thread, and I think you know why.
If you mean some other discrepancy in the votes, I haven't noticed it yet, but I'll do an audit later tonight if I have time.

I will ask people to please not refer to the current interloper's latest screen identity, and if you don't ignore the troll yourself, don't ask me to include the votes they cast, or the comments they make.
There are two people on this forum who do their utmost to slander me and others, while begging for pity from others as if they were the ones under attack. They are positively not allowed to bring their bull on here.
Yes, I don't respond to their lies and noise anymore, that includes their participation in the games I start.

If that sounds mean or unfair, I'm sorry, but the full story is unrelatable if you don't know it already, and the whole purpose of Ignoring these two trouble-makers is because I do not want to have negative feelings towards *anyone* on this forum. I hope this is understood.
I want to let all grudges fade away, and for those who hold them to move on with life and find a better use of their time, and cease obsessing on what they cannot change.

Q, everyone else I don't have on ignore (all but one here,) please kept voting as usual, I'll make sure the totals come out right.

>C. J. Vasta says:
"Q: Jonathan accidentally skipped [the fraud]'s votes."<

It's no accident. Toby and I are not the only ones who have this major nuisance on ignore now, either, so please don't take that into your hands again. I cannot believe after all this time you are not up-to-speed of that person's multiple ID's and defamation against half of the people on this forum.

This is not the place to bring you up to date. Perhaps someone else can help clue you in somewhere else, or you can do a search on the subject.
I'm trying my best to avoid unnecessary drama on this thread.

I will correct any mistakes made, so there's no need to correct them yourselves.

Thanks for playing, and let's do our best to keep this a fun, stress-free thread!
.

...For Jill Q., everyone, I'll say again: have no fear about if it's the right time to cast your vote, or if the totals are right: just vote! It'll all be correct at the end of the week, I promise.

- Tippy running from the birds
- Tippy running from the police

I've come to the conclusion that I really do not like Tippy. She ruined Marnie for me. That could have been an awesome film.

After C. J. Vasta, The Laziest Man In Town . . .

_______________________
REVISED and adding my own votes.
A couple strange things happened. I just realized that 'Under Capricorn' was listed TWICE, and C. J. Vasta managed to make sure both listings were down to 5 points by his September 21st post! By the way, C. J., sometimes it's hard to get the totals right on your votes when you don't provide strong enough clues on what you voted for, so please in the future be less cryptic, maybe even tip your hand with a title here or there?

At least one other odd part was seeing C.J. right here make 'Saboteur' jump from 9 to 19 points. Nice trick if you can get it. . .

I think Anthony Perkins is so darn cute. I love him in 'On the Beach'. Sean Connery was a looker in his younger days too!
I can't say the same for Tippi. You shoulda stuck with Grace Kelly, Hitch.
