    How did I forget Rope, OMG, yeah, that is another of his '40's film that is awesome. That film's subtext is awesome!

    Totally agree. I like Sasha Grey, and I liked a couple parts of the movie, but otherwise it did nothing for me. It was kind of boring.

    Also watched Young Frankenstein. Just an awesome collection of jokes, puns, gags, word play, sight gags. Love it. Also Blazing Saddles, great friggin' movie.
    Young Frankenstein is genius. Man, I love Gene Wilder.

    You have academic essays on Hitchcock movies??? Or do you take orders for them? I'd like some on North by Northwest, Vertigo, and Psycho please.

    Cary Grant was mother****ing sexy in the day!!! I don't care if he was possibly bi or homosexual. The whole time we watched Notorious I kept on saying "Hawt!!" at the tv.

    I've seen Rebecca and have read the book. It is one of my favorites.

    Yes, Adgy is deficient in his Hitchcock movies but it's a fun process to get him caught up. We watched The Lady Vanishes a few months back, I thought it was pretty funny.

    Rope is pretty amazing. I didn't realize it was the 40's, I always assumed it was much later. The movie has only one obvious cut. The rest of the film is made to look like one long tracking shot (though they do cut by moving past a bookshelf or person about every 8 minutes as that is the amount of film a camera could hold back then).

    I'm also a fan of the remake of The Man Who Knew to Much.

    Just watched F is for Fake. It's a pseudo documentry by Orson Welles. It's about the nature and validity of frauds and fakes in the world. And what makes something fake? It's a mind trip. By the end you truly feel mind ****ed. The acting and the writing are excellent. It's pretty damn good. There is a Criterion release of it. Also netflix streams it.

    Anyone seen this film?

    Rope is suspenseful as hell and is a great style experiment of essentially making a film-play. It's so smooth and works so well.

    The James Stewart/Doris Day version of the Man Who Too Much is definitely much better than the original. But gotta give the original props for being Peter Lorre's first English speaking role.

    Well, as a college student, I have access to all these databases, which are like a candy store to me. I often look for sources for my papers, but because I am such a nerd, I procrastinate by looking up for academic essays based on random stuff that I like, including films.

    If you want a good source on Psycho, however, you can check out "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho" by Stephen Rebello.

    "The women who knew too much: Hitchcock and Feminist Theory"
    by Tania Modleski is also a very interesting look at several Hitch films through a feminist lens.

    That's a good start.

    I have never heard of Grant having the Gayness. Laurence Olivier yes, but not Grant. Lol! However, I wouldn't be surprised if he was. He was really good in Arsenic and Old Lace too.

    I love the film and watch it at least once a year, but have never read the book. I really should. In fact, I think that the only book that served as the basis for a Hitch film that I have read is Psycho. I want to read the book that served as the basis for Strangers on a Train, which I am sure was written by the same woman who wrote the novel that served as the basis for The Talented Mr. Ripley (seen the film, but haven't read that novel either).

    The Lady Vanishes IS really funny. I finally got around to watching my first silent Hitch film, The Lodger, which was pretty interesting. Hitch worked alongside Fritz Lang for a while and The Lodger definitely channeled Lang. I think that The Lady Vanishes and The 39 Steps, however, are the first films when Hitch begins to find his voice.

    Peter Lorre is, hands down, one of my all time favorite actors. The guy had a gift.
