Young Frankenstein is genius. Man, I love Gene Wilder.Also watched Young Frankenstein. Just an awesome collection of jokes, puns, gags, word play, sight gags. Love it. Also Blazing Saddles, great friggin' movie.
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.
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?
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.
Prince George: You know, Blackadder, for me socks are like sex. Lots of it about and I never seem to get any.
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.
