    Favorite Hitchcock Movies?

    To borrow from SanDiegoRed's recent James Bond thread, I have been watching some good old Alfred movies lately. I'll get this thing going...my favorite ones are:

    Dial 'M' for Murder (1954)

    Rear Window (1954)

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Psycho, a sure classic
    Rear Window.
    North By Northwest
    Rope
    Birds
    The Trouble With Harry, Sabateour, Lifeboat and Strangers On A Train were also rather good. After all, Hitch is one of my favorites.

    Strangers on a Train--Robert Walker's Bruno is, IMO, Hitchcock's greatest screen invention. Anthony Perkins's acting in Psycho is better (though I think Psycho is one of Hitchcock's weakest screenplays), and Cary Grant is more loveable, but Walker's character is a once in a generation role.

    North by Northwest--Cary Grant's finest hour--one of the most nuanced movies I've ever seen.

    I like the dark Cary and the erotic, perverse love affair w/ Bergman in "Notorious".... iconic Hitchcock scenes such as the classic, long crane shot of the key in Bergman's hand...the resignation of Claude Rains as he goes back into the house in the last shot of the movie , the look on his mother's face when she learns the truth about Alicia and lights that cigarette and ... of course the passionate, extended 3 minute kissing scene.. Hitchcock's best, imho.

    Rear Window is a close second. I can look out that back window w/ Scottie over and over again.

    Put a tally mark next to Rear Window for me.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Easily Rear Window. It's probably in the top 3 of my all-time favorite movies. I NEVER get tired of watching Grace Kelly
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Yep Rear Window by far. Couple great performaces in Stewart and Kelly.

    Great twister... Excellent movie.

    Indeed. While I liked Dial M For Murder, I thought the premise unrealistic. After all, if you were married to Grace Kelly why in the world would you want to kill her? Can't go wrong with North By Northwest either. I thought Rope was interesting from a filmmaking perspective.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Sad to say that I've not seen too many. The Birds stands out for me though.

    Does anyone remember Alfred Hitchcock Presents? I once saw a clip from the opening of the show where Alfred is explaining how actors get "into" character. He says something to the effect that this actor is preparing for his role as a stuffy old codger by pretending to be an elephant. The camera pulls back and he is standing next to a real elephant. Alfred looks at the animal then back at the camera and deadpans, "Excellent".

    Note to self: watch more Hitchcock movies.
