The Trouble with Harry (1955, Alfred Hitchcock)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Feb 8, 2019

The Trouble with Harry is very cute. It’s fine, the film’s intentionally cute, but it’s also somewhat frustrating. With the exception of the glorious Technicolor exteriors of Vermont leaves, director Hitchcock and photographer Robert Burks don’t do anything particularly interesting. John Michael read more

Lifeboat (1944, Alfred Hitchcock)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on May 18, 2018

Lifeboat never feels stagy, which is one of the film’s greatest successes. The entire thing takes place in a single lifeboat, with director Hitchcock not doing many medium or long shots of the lifeboat exterior. All the action is with the actors, Hitchcock using distinctive composition–Glen MacWill read more

Silent Sunday – The Pleasure Garden (1925) (dir. Alfred Hitchcock)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Feb 4, 2018

Alfred Hitchcock

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Sep 25, 2017

With a wealth of biographies out there it’s often difficult to differentiate yourself from the herd by finding someone new to say. A figure like Alfred Hitchcock, outside of being analyzed from a filmic standpoint, is an open book – pun intended – when it comes to research and info read more

Rear Window (1954, Alfred Hitchcock)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jan 14, 2017

Rear Window is an absurdly good time. It’s breathtakingly produced and the set is a marvel on its own, but it’s also an absurdly good time. You’ve got Thelma Ritter chastising James Stewart not just for peeping, she also chastises him for not being serious enough about Grace Kelly. How could it read more

Classic Film Freak Posted by Greg Orypeck on Sep 8, 2016

Share This! A new biography of the iconic movie director, that “master of suspense” as he came to be known, but also a man of many complex faces, as this biography reveals. The last Hitchcock book reviewed in these columns, back in 2008, was Donald Spoto’s latest of at least his third take on read more

The 39 Steps (1935, Alfred Hitchcock)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 7, 2016

There are numerous good moments in The 39 Steps. Even the clunky finale is a good moment–director Hitchcock knows he’s got a good moment, he just doesn’t know how to fill in around it. This inability on Hitchcock’s part makes The 39 Steps immediately interesting when compare read more
