ON MOVIES ~ Alfred Hitchcock Presents...




Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME


Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.


This week's movie topic is all about Alfred Hitchock...


Ahhh - the Master! All of today's great suspense and thriller movies are either rooted in Hitchcock, compared to Hitchock or out and out re-makes of Hitchcock. The portly director had an excellent sense of humor and loved to insert himself into his films in brief cameos. But he was best behind the lense, directing his strong characters in all kinds of uneasy situations. He himself never won an Oscar (blasphemy!) but one of the films he directed did win Best Picture. It is one of our favorites in the list below - do you know which one it is? Share some of your favorite Hitch movies on your blog and link back here at The Bumbles.



  • Rebecca (1940) - a fairy tale marriage turns into a nightmare

  • Rear Window (1954) - innocent spying on neighbors reveals sinister actions

  • Dial M for Murder (1954) - quite the "Plan B"


  • Vertigo (1958) - just when you thought you knew someone...

    Oops...did you accidently post this one? I saw it and thought I'd done something wrong on my end and post the wrong one. I love A.H. movies but haven't seen nearly enough of them. In working on this post, I was amazed that he has done over fifty of them. Rear window is one of my favorite movies of all time. Grace Kelly is breathtaking.

    wow, all of those were great movies. I have no idea so I would just guess Rebecca. One day strolling through Walmart, I found an Alfred Hitcock video of a lot of his old tv shows for $5. You know that went home with me in a heartbeat! It's great to watch some of those old black and white shows.
