Hitchcock Year Revisited

Posted in FILM with tags , , on May 15, 2012 by dcairns

As Regular Shadowplayers may know, I spent 2009 watching all of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, one a week — plus all the TV shows he personally directed for good measure.

But for the benefit of any newcomers, I thought I’d link to a few highlights, in honour of For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon. If you don’t see your favourite there, that’s ’cause my selection is governed by perversity and whim. But if you search for Hitchcock Year in the SEARCH function to the right, all the entries will appear, in reverse order. Or just type the name of the film you’re after.
