The Birds (1963) – reviewed by George

Alfred Hitchcock’s 49th film, coming right after “Psycho”, ┬áhas been called his monster movie. Personally I don’t see it. “The Birds” is really scary, but you’re trying to defend yourself against a flock of birds, not just one bird, which … Continue reading

Vertigo (1958) – reviewed by George

Alfred Hitchcock’s 46th film is a stunner. It has a stunning opening sequence and a stunning ending and in between it is stunningly good as well. James Stewart plays John Ferguson, “Scottie” to some, a plainclothes detective whose acrophobia is … Continue reading

The Wrong Man (1956) – reviewed by George

Alfred Hitchcock’s 45th film is very suspenseful, but is also very infuriating, and true. One certainly hopes that police procedures have improved greatly in the last 62 years. “Manny” Balestrero (Henry Fonda) is a bass player at the Stork Club. … Continue reading

Rear Window (1954) – reviewed by George

Alfred Hitchcock’s 41st film is a knockout in two major ways. First the set is the most impressive studio construction since Babylon in 1916’s “Intolerance”, and second because the suspense starts fairly early and just does not let up. First … Continue reading
