PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

32. "Hitchcock"
Close enough for government work, HomeBrewer: "Funeral March of a Marionette" by Gounod.

I was always a Hitchcock fan as a kid. The first "serious" movie that caught my attention -- the one that drew me in to the movies -- was "Rear Window." I was very surprised to learn (as an adult) that either Siskel or Ebert also cited this movie as filling the same role in his life!

I also am a huge fan of the wide variety of movies made by David O. Selznick at the Selznick Studios before it folded in 1947. Selznick brought Hitchcock to the U.S. -- the last movie made by the original Selznick Studios before it was broken up for tax reasons was 1940's Best Picture Oscar-winning "Rebecca" (Hitchcock's first US movie), giving Selznick back-to-back Best Picture Oscars. Hitchcock continued under contract to Selznick until a huge stinker of a film called "The Paradine Case" (which Selznick wrote himself). One interesting thing was that the Selznick Studios were originally set up to make 50% Technicolor movies, but ALL of Hitchcock's movies for Selznick were in B&W ("Notorious," "Shadow of a Doubt," "Spellbound," "Foreign Correspondent," "Suspicion," etc.).

Of course, Hitchcock had already made one truly great movie back in the UK: "The 39 Steps." And he made many more great movies after splitting with Selznick (including "Strangers on a Train," "I Confess," "Rear Window," "To Catch a Thief," "Vertigo," "North by Northwest," "The Wrong Man," "The Man Who Knew Too Much" remake, etc.). But the Selznick movies are still special.

Gee, is it obvious that I love Hitchcock too? Oh, and shakes ... I'm not apologizing for hijacking this thread. That's what happens on O/T!
