Staying power to put it simply. It has remained an iconic film for over 50 years. The thrill factor was incredible for its time period. I still have images of the shower scene pop up occassionally.
I think it's The Birds. Why? Just because it was very original. I mean, who else would've thought that birds can be so scary?
Vertigo. I love the melodrama and the waves of emotion. Every scene sucks you into it and demands your attention. It's definitely one of my favourite films.
Psycho to me is an important film as it laid the groundwork for many horror films that came after. Rear Window has been utilized as a plot in many shows and for great reason, it's a classic film full of suspense in the way only Hitchcock could achieve. These two movies for me are my favorite of his, though I love The Birds as well.
Bill ... saw Foreign Correspondent last week and have moved it up there with North by Northwest ... I know "really old guy" ...
Vertigo. It's been called Hitchcock's most beautiful film. Even though it's a sad story, its ethereal. As James Stewart spies on Kim Novak there are long periods without dialogue and this time is enhanced by the use of Bernard Herrmann's score. And the use of location is so well done. There are so many iconic places in and around San Francisco that the film visits. I don't think most movies take advantage of the cities they take place in so thoroughly. My favorite scene is when Novak leads Stewart down an alley. He follows her into a building. The first room is dark and drab, but he opens a door to the most colorful flower shop. It sums up the movie. It's dark and disturbed but its also beautiful.

In recent news, it was not only announce that there would be a film based on a brief period in Alfred Hitchcock's life, where he's at the peak of his career, yet nobody would fund his proposed "Psycho" film. Therefore, he's forced to have to raise the production money himself. ...

hmmm... Does anyone know? I was channel surfing and I saw a dog show and it was in the terrier group. But, I tuned in a little late so I didn't get the name of the terrier. Oh, and an interesting fact was that Alfred Hitchcock had one. I'm searching on the internet but I can't seem to find...
