Happy Birthday, Hitch!

Okay, one more post before I hit the sack.
Last Thursday would have been Alfred Hitchcock's 110th birthday. What a masterful filmmaker, and surely one of the all time greats, no question about it.
My Mom never liked "horror" movies, but for her, Hitchcock was different--his thrillers could scare you, but also be very entertaining.
My favorite Hitchcock film would have to be "North By Northwest." Just look at that cast, the story, the score.. It's got everything--even Mount Rushmore!
But honestly, I love them all. He was truly a gifted artist, and I'm just glad we have his films with us today.
For a more comprehensive look at his work and life, check out this post.
