    Ooh, good choice! Rope is my favourite Hitch movie. Try and get Strangers On A Train somewhere in there - love it!

    ...and let's not forget Rebecca, Shadow of a Doubt, and especially FRENZY--one of my all-time favorites and by far the most violent, nasty picture Hitch ever made.

    We have a new "side channel" on digital TV called "RTN"- retro television. Saturday night they run the old Hitchcock TV show. Great stuff!

    LOL- Jaz, we're watching the same tv shows!

    Rear Window, Psycho, The Birds, Dial M for Murder, Strangers on a Train - I can't choose between them. What a great Director Hitchcock was.

    Rear Window. I love the inventive set decoration. All these windows James Stewart sees, with all the stories behind it. Just love it.

    Life Boat is really good. That's probably my fave though I voted for Psycho since it's on the list.

    The Birds was one of the first movies I saw with my friends. Scared the piss out of me, I had nightmares for months.

    Even now, when a bunch of birds gathers together, I have a momentary flash of the movie.

    What about the movie Rope, based on the (Nathan) Leopold
    and (Richard) Loeb murder case.

    Gotta go with Vertigo 1st
    Then a tie between Rear Window and Psycho.

    The Birds is really close with The Wrong Man also in there.

    Heck you are right, they are all good!

    I initially wanted to disagree with the comment after your selection. But damn, that is the only movie I ever watch without blinking. Every second of it is jaw dropping. You are absolutely right.

    I love Hitchcock! All those movies were great. Hard to pick just one fav. I love Rear Window - James Stewart is one of my all time favs and Grace Kelly was just so beautiful. It was a great film.

    Seconded. But I'm kinda obsessed with Cary Grant, so take that for what it's worth.

    Mr. and Mrs. Smith. :P Carole Lombard had a lot of fun 'directing' Hitch during his cameo.

    I love The Birds, well anything Hitchcock did was wonderful really. Did anyone catch Tippi Hendren as the special guest star on CSI Vegas on the December 4 episode? She looked great!

    No damn missed it...I thought she would of aged well...
    I always loved North by Northwest, but wonder if someone else played Eve Kendal if I would have loved it more...since I am not a huge fan of hers..
