Line(s) of the Day #AlfredHitchcock Posted on August 6, 2014 by alexraphael Disney, of course, has the best casting. If he doesn’t like an actor, he just tears him up. ‘The Master of Suspense’, legendary British director Sir Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980).

A film and TV genius, I truly love all of his work.
Very true. Could you pick a top 5? Rob and Zoe are running a great Hitchcock blogathon if you get the chance to have a look.
Top 5…hmm, that would be difficult. Today, it would be (in no particular order)
1. Strangers on a Train
2. North by Northwest
3. Rear Window
4. Rebecca (Hitchcock but not LOL)
5. Shadow of a Doubt
Impressed you could do one so quickly. Nice list. Psycho would be in mine, as would The 39 Steps, but I think I’d definitely have to pinch three from your list.
Yeah, I keep going back to Psycho, mainly because Anthony Perkins is just amazing in his portrayal…so I guess we can drop Rebecca on the technicality 🙂
When I saw it for the first time I sat back amazed for some moments, and then watched it back again from the start.
Right! And some days I would swap out Rear Window, as brilliant as that was in how it was filmed from that POV, for The Birds. Just because. 🙂
The Birds is great. I did like Rope a lot too, but didn’t think James Stewart was right for the main role.
When I was 12 (in 1962) I climbed the hill (almost a mountain and very steep) next to our farm house. I put a note inside a plastic bag and hid it in the hollow of a tree. It read “I hereby declare this hill to be named Hitchcock Hill”. Thirty years later, I was teaching several hundred miles away. A student came and showed me a note he’d found inside a tree at the top of a mountain! It had my name at the bottom!
That is awesome 🙂
That’s a great line. A bit surprising it isn’t more famous.
He had some phenomenal quotes. It was tricky to choose just one.
😆 I love him so much 🙂
I wish he was still making films!
