The Man Who Knew Too Much
The Man Who Knew Too Much
"Three words: Que Sera Sera! Marvelous mystery. Doris Day was a babe! in an innocuous,apple-pie sort of way-but nonetheless!"
The Birds (Collector's Edition)
The Birds (Collector's Edition)
"Hitch reportedly had a little "not nice" fun at Tippi Hedren's expense for spurning his amorous advances during this film's making.Disturbing film,and great.Nature can be so disagreeable at times!"
Dial M for Murder [VHS]

"Oh Grace! How I love thee,let me murder some meddling rooster to prove it,or appease my broken ego;either way is fine.And so is this classic of suspense!"
Notorious [VHS]

"Possibly,Cary Grant's finest,layered performance.Social codes have never been so thwarting for bad guys,as the memorable ending effectively displays."
To Catch a Thief

Spellbound

"Ingrid Bergman! Gregory Peck! Psychoanalysis! Salvador Dali dream sequence! Another Oscar nomination for Hitch! Another lose!"
Saboteur
Saboteur
"The closest Hitch ever got(retroactively speaking,of course)to a "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" type flick.Blatant American patriotism aside(WW II was in progress),great fun."
Man Who Knew Too Much

"I like the remake better,but this one was still excellent.I mean,Peter Lorre was in it, for God's sake!"
Frenzy

"Hitch returns to his native England,and produces one of the greatest reverse tracking shots in cinematic history."
Marnie [VHS]
Marnie [VHS]
"Not Hitch's best to be sure,but still a fascinating psychological portrait. Hedren's relations with Hitch were very tense during filming;they only spoke through mediators."
Family Plot

"Hitch's final film,and his most light-hearted. R.I.P."
