North by Northwest

That wasn’t very sporting, using real bullets… Well it’s been a couple of weeks again since I’ve watched a bit of the Hitchcock but only out of busyness; still on the back foot, but very much focused on the end goal. Since I last rambled on what I’ve affectionally come to call this ‘Hitchblog’ I have managed to get hold … Read More

Notorious

with No Comments

An old friend is never an extra guest… I’ll try and keep this one a bit shorter as I’ve been trying to catch up a bit on the film front and have watched two very close together this week. I probably do myself a disservice by waffling on for 2 or 3 paragraphs before actually making any valuable comments on … Read More

Strangers On A Train

I may be old fashioned, but I thought murder was against the law… You know what I like about Hitchcock (besides all the other things…)? Cameos!

If you find a perfect thing, or place, or person, you should stick to it… One month in and two films down, a little behind on the viewings but in setting up this blog and aquiring enough films to keep me going for a couple of months now whilst I source some more, I am confident things are on track … Read More

Dial M For Murder

with No Comments

That’s the trouble with these latchkeys. They’re all alike… First, a little background… As Dial M for Murder was the catalyst for this entire project it seemed only fitting that it should be the first viewing. Being that I’d already seen it only a month ago and it is so fresh in my memory I wasn’t sure about just simply … Read More
