Hitchcock Double Feature

It's funny, I've rented so many modern films investigating "the thriller", when all I needed to do was start with the master. How stupid of you, Kat.


Suspicion

This movie is exactly what I've been looking for. Back and forth. Is he or isn't he? All the way to the credits and beyond.


Rebecca
Oh man. This might be one of my new favorite films. And I think I'm in love with Lawrence Olivier.

Oh, Rebecca!! It IS my favorite film. And the book...sigh...so good.

If you've never had the pleasure might I suggest checking out "Shadow of a Doubt" and "Strangers on a Train" as another Hitch-centric double feature? "Shadow" is probably my favorite of his.

Rebecca is my favorite book, and I love Hitchcock's adaptation.

actually, i have a list now of new ones to watch. my husband handed me a book of truffaut interviewing hitchcock which i'm just delving into.

i've see strangers on a train but it's been some time now. and funny enough, i saw that they're doing a remake of it. go figure.

They showed Strangers on a Train last year at the old Alamo with Farley Granger in attendance. It was great! I always confuse some of the plot elements of Suspicion and Rebecca, it is funny that you should mention them in the same blog.
