En Route

strange1wrongxRomance with a double bass: Hitch in STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, Fonda in THE WRONG MAN.

My Hitchcock Year entry is on it’s way, don’t worry. THE WRONG MAN is number ten in the countdown to the end — think of that as you plan your Christmas shopping. And from here on, the gaps between Hitchcock films start to get longer. Speculations as to an overall reason for this are welcome, but the answer likely lies as much in the contingencies of Hollywood production in the crisis times of the sixties, as it does in Hitch’s advancing years.

  1. It’s important to point out that the years from THE WRONG MAN to MARNIE(an uninterrupted run of masterpieces) are fairly consistent and prolific. The trouble starts after that.

  2. There’s a giant gap before The Birds, presumably due to the demands of the special effects, and perhaps an abandoned project or two.

  3. Christopher Says:

    watched Frenzy a few weeks ago..first time in many many years..what a treat!

  4. It’s going to be very interesting to see that one in December. I have very mixed feelings about it, which isn’t to say I don’t like it.
