    DIRECTOR FILMOGRAPHY - The Films of ALFRED HITCHCOCK
    Looks like there’s enough interest in this for me to keep going, which I'll try to post at least one a day. Might as well follow-up with one of the bigger giants of cinema for part 2. Rank ‘em, rate ‘em, review ‘em or whatever.

    (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...)

    ALFRED HITCHCOCK



    Family Plot (1976) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - good comic Hitch

    Frenzy (1972) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - latter day Hitch at his best

    Topaz (1969) - [​IMG] - latter day Hitch at his worst

    Torn Curtain (1966) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - the right stars makes it work

    The Birds (1963) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - the suspense is brilliant that lead is not

    Psycho (1960) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - perfection

    North by Northwest (1959) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - brilliant gobbledygook

    Vertigo (1958) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - sheer genius

    The Wrong Man (1956) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - fogotten, but outstanding gem, great cast

    The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - fluffy Hitch at his best, and that song is catchy too

    The Trouble with Harry (1955) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Hitch's best black comedy

    To Catch a Thief (1955) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - fluffy Hitch that's damned good fun

    Rear Window (1954) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - took me a while but it is definitely perfect

    Dial M for Murder (1954) - [​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - we've seen this before and better

    I Confess (1953) - 1/2 - Hitch at his self indulgent worst, good lead performance though

    Strangers on a Train (1951) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - How is a film like this, this damn good?

    Rope (1948) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - it works, it really does work very f-ing well

    Notorious (1946) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - takes a while to warm too but it has such a lovely glow

    Spellbound (1945) - [​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - a bit of a stretcher, eh?

    Lifeboat (1944) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - surprisingly brilliant piece

    Shadow of a Doubt (1943) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Hitch's best pre fifties US film

    Saboteur (1942) - [​IMG][​IMG] - hey wait, I saw this once before

    Rebecca (1940) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - how he got such a good film out of such a bad novel I'll never know

    The Lady Vanishes (1938) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Fluffy Hitch perfection to rival his fifties peak

    Sabotage (1936) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - brilliant piece of shocking and suspenseful filmmaking

    Secret Agent (1936) - [​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - good performances, but just never gels

    The 39 Steps (1935) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - a journeyman work of surpassing elegance and confidence, one of his best

    The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - damn good bit of entertainment.

    Blackmail (1929) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Brilliant work, regardless of the year of production, but especially so for 29

    The Lodger (1927) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Ahh, Hitch is born, but the question is, was the lead really really the killer? I think so.

    The Mountain Eagle (1926) LOST

    The Pleasure Garden (1925) LOST

    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)

    The Master. My rough rankings:
    1. North by Northwest
    2. Vertigo
    3. Rear Window
    4. Notorious
    5. Psycho
    6. The Man Who Knew Too Much (54)
    7. The Lady Vanishes
    8. Rebecca
    9. Strangers on a Train
    10 To Catch a Thief
    11 Frenzy
    12 The 39 Steps
    13 Marnie
    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).

    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.

    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..."
