Happy Birthday to Classic Movie Legend, Alfred Hitchcock, born on August 13th in 1899!
It’s difficult to summarize someone like Hitchcock in a blog post. His films could be complex and subversive; silly and serious; all in the same scene. A master of his craft, Hitchcock has not only made himself a household name, but a film school adjective, as well. I wouldn’t want to begin to think of all the times I heard the word Hitchcockian to describe a modern film filled with those famed Hitchcock tropes. So, how do I celebrate this man’s birthday? Well, rather than focus on the Vertigos or The Psychos of his career, I want to point out some of my favorites but, for some reason, lesser known films of the Hitchcock Legacy.
The Trouble with Harry. A suspense comedy that Hitch often described as one of his personal favorites. Oh, and it was the film debut of someone names Shirley MacLaine. You may or may not have heard of her. (1955, Alfred Hitchcock director)
