Yep, caught it on TCM Rob. I'm not really big into silents anyway, in fact I can count the number I own on one hand & they're all German (mostly by Fritz Lang). Posted Image But that out of place whimsical piano score really was a detriment to building any type of suspense IMO.

I agree about the piano score. And that started right from the beginning! Seemed somewhat contradictory at times to what was happening on screen.
For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

Yep, he's been watching the missing films in my viewing, though I do have some of those tivo'd. I've been on a business trip, so I haven't had a chance to watch anything this week. Posted Image

50? That's amazing! How many left Jim, 3? Must be your favorite director, or is it Kurosawa? Hitch is definitely my favorite but I've only seen 31 and own 28. I need to catch up. Posted Image

Yep Steve, Hitch is one of my favorites. Even the less than stellar films usually have something going for it to make it worthwhile.



Didn't care much for the Silent Melodrama's in his oeuvre though. Pantomime and flailing arms just aren't my cup 'o tea. Posted Image

Earliest Hitchcock film I really like is The Lady Vanishes (1938), I've watched it countless times, love the characters, the setting, the dialogue, could never get tired of it. Jamaica Inn (1939) is one I've picked up recently, haven't seen it in ages, not one of his best but I like Charles Laughton.



Hitchcock on directing Laughton:

"You can't direct a Laughton picture. The best you can hope for is to referee." Posted Image

The Skin Game



Why is it that the vast majority of Hitchcock's mysteries are magical films, among the very best ever made, while his dramas are just...bland and lukewarm? Not horrible, just not very good? I have no idea, but it sure seems that way.



Unfortunately, the Skin Game is a drama, and while it's got a few Hitchcock touches, it's nothing I'll be buying on dvd.

Aventure Malgache



No great Hitchcock certainly, but I actually kind of enjoyed it.

I like The Skin Game quite a bit. I've always been very interested in "class" issues and few make better class films than the British. Plus it's a melodramatic tragedy, what's not to like? Posted Image

Bon Voyage



About on par with Aventure Malgache --- I think. Once again the TCM print cut off half the subtitles. This time I decided to go ahead and watch it anyway, and I got the gist of things, if not all the subtleties.
