  1. Elizabeth McGrady says:

    Cary Grant was suave, sex, a bit mysterious, a tad evil. He was doing “a good deed” by least than honorable means, through Ingrid Bergman. He was in a TUXEDO! SEXY SMART!

  2. Kristin Goodson says:

    I loved To Catch a Thief! Such a great mystery classic and I loved Grace Kelly in it as well.

  3. Dorothy Winnett says:

    Notorious, definitely. Cary Grant,Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains,Hitchcock. The recipe for the most amazing suspense movie ever. ♡♥♡♥♡♥♡♥♡

  4. North by Northwest definitely for me is classic. The action sequence on Mt. Rushmore is just breath-taking.

  5. North by Northwest, because I grew up a fan of the James Bond movies, but NXNW precedes them and is classier, funnier, and more exciting than even the best of them. And because I love to imitate James Mason’s voice.

  6. Rockfish says:

    That’s a tough one, since both North by Northwest and Notorious are among my all-time favs; NBNW bowls me over from the first chords of Hermann’s musical intro, ramping up my anticipation for a wild roller coaster adventure with Roger O. Thornhill… Notorious simmers and seduces in a different manner, as Hitchcock unravels this romantic noir like a sadistic tease until we empathize with Rains’ loyal but doomed Nazi accomplice. Grant is Grant and lights up the screen with his charisma and utter sex appeal. He proved perfect as Devlin, measured and coolly detached until he and Bergman walk away in the final embrace. If I have to choose, this day it’s NBNW as the winter blahs scream out for an intense, blazing chase across Lincoln’s nose…

      Hi, for some reason, I cannot find your tweet… could you please let me know if you did tweet the message; perhaps @mention me on twitter so I can find it. Thanks!

  7. Chris Teel says:

    I know this is to win a copy of North By Northwest, but I would have to say Suspicion (not Suspicious, I hope that doesn’t trash my chances) is my favorite, for two reasons. First, I favor black and white over color, it makes the viewer focus on the actors and dialogue more than color does. Secondly, Joan Fontaine. North By Northwest is still a great film.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that I typed Suspicious!!! Must have ‘crossed’ Suspicion with Notorious 🙂 I just corrected it! Thanks for noticing…

  8. Joan O'Malley says:

    Toss up between Suspicious and Notorious with Suspicious a slight edge. Cary is the ultimate playboy, ne’er do well. Charming, likable but Hitchcock makes you think it could be possible for him to actually kill trusting, naive Joan.

  9. Gail Pascaris says:

    Notorious is my favorite Cary Grant/Hitchcock film. I love the scenes between Cary and Ingrid. And Claude Rains is terrific in the film too.

  10. Maureen says:

    Notorious is the one I have seen the least (ahem) so I can’t judge it fairly against the other three. So at this point, Suspicion is my favourite because I do so adore Cary being given the opportunity to step outside of his box and be evil. Even with the altered ending, you still know damn well he’s a killer. 🙂

    My all-time favourite Cary movie is Holiday. I wish the world would rain copies of that DVD. 🙂

  11. Christina sharpe says:

    My favourite Carey Grant/Hitchcock movie is To Catch A Thief. The beautiful locations and the chemistry between Cary Grant and Grace Kelly is unmatched in any other of his Hitchcock movies. It’s so stylish and the story is incredible.

  12. Susan Mazza says:

    It’s a tough toss up between Suspicion and To Catch a Thief. I love it best when Cary is suave, sexy, and a little naughty. The color and scenery in To Catch a Thief captivate me (not to mention the fireworks scene! whew!)

  13. Mia Meyer says:

    Notorious. Ingrid. Cary. So romantic.

  14. Michael says:

    North By Northwest because it is a well crafted, classic suspense thriller with an engaging plot and a great cast of characters. Not to mention quotes like this:

    Roger Thornhill: “I didn’t realize you were an art collector. I thought you just collected corpses.”

  15. Jennifer Rodriguez says:

    My favorite Hitchcock movie is probably Notorious. I love how it’s a different Cary Grant role than what’s used to. Ingrid and Grant’s chemistry is off the charts in this movie and they are both well suited to hitchcock’s style, making the movie even better. This was also one of the movies that made me love Cary Grant while also being the first Hitchcock movie I saw.

  16. ErinW says:

    Notorious is my favorite! Ingrid Bergman is so good; her relationship with Grant is so deliciously complicated.

  17. Stephen Hoy says:

    Of these great films, I like North by Northwest the best. Love the way Hitchcock transforms commonplace into sinister. The iconic crop-duster scene is always thrilling & afterward we get to peer inside the eyes of the great presidents.
