I’m really lacking when it comes to silent films.

Me too, though I've made Saturday nights my official "watch-a-silent-movie" night. I've knocked off a slew of Doug Fairbanks films; now I need to work on the Langs that I have plus the Buster Keaton set.

(There are others that I've seen, but it was too long ago for me to accurately grade other than saying that I do like both versions of The Man Who Knew Too Much and I don't like Family Plot, Torn Curtain or The Parradine Case and so on...)
I don't care for modern films. All crashing cars and close-ups of people's feet.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

Well, clearly I haven't seen enough films. I'll have to remedy that. I've only seen a few Hitchcocks, some of which I consider absolute masterpieces, some not so much. Here are the ones I've seen ranked in order of my preference.

Rear Window (1954)
North by Northwest (1959)
Psycho (1960)
Vertigo (1958)

The Birds (1963)
Notorious (1946)
Rebecca (1940)

14 Spellbound

I own most of the above on DVD. I have also seen Saboteur and The Birds, but didn't care too much for either.

If anyone wants to actually take the time to look at my list and make a suggestion as to what Hitchcock film is the best that I haven't seen, please do so (I am leaning towards Foreign Correspondent and Dial M for Murder).

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

Those would both be good choices. I did notice the absence of Shadow of a Doubt (which is what I'd suggest), which I think is one of Hitchcock's most overlooked & underrated films.

Great. Shadow of a Doubt it is. Thanks Jim.

Rob,

I did enjoy watching Frenzy (maybe 4 later). I'd put it above To Catch A Thief [just below Dial M for Murder].


Glad you enjoyed it.

I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."
