Psycho - Vertigo - Rear Window....just mentioning a few of Alfred Hitchcock's movies which I guess we have all encountered or seen on TV/DVD .... and it seems to be a like/dislike relationship to his movies as almost none are neutral to what they have seen.... and is it not interesting that a 1950s movies can still makes those small hair on your body rise in horror??!! Guess that tells us that modern days' special effects still compeed with the old "simple" effects :o)

I have just seen hitchcock with Anthony Hopkins and Hellen Mirren as the Hitchcocks portraying the time wen they struggled to make the movie Psycho - revealing why Janet Leigh's scream in the famous scene with the shower curtain are so realistic. I was surprised to learn that secret and still you can not help laughing when you find out - and let me just say, he was not being nice to his leading ladies.

I'm intrigued and want to see this now! I love the older movies, some of them had such suspense by what you didn't see. That's so much more than what you get now with the gore and violence in more modern movies. I also love the romance of old movies. Sigh, the classics!
