Alfred Hitchcock On Demand
by Betty Jo Tucker

From July 17 through July 23, Movie Addict HQ pays tribute to legendary director Alfred Hitchcock by offering ON DEMAND a popular vintage episode about the Master of Suspense. Film historian James Colt Harrison, entertainment journalist Diana Saenger, and the Movie Addict HQ gang engage in a spirited discussion about Hitchcock’s greatest films and the reasons for his success. Listeners can hear this show anytime during the week by clicking on the link at the end of this article.

Hitchcock directed more than fifty feature films during a career that lasted six decades. Movie Maker Magazine called him “the most influential filmmaker of all time.” And, according to Britain’s Daily Telegraph, Hitchcock “did more than any other director to shape modern cinema.”  Because Hitchcock movies boast twist endings plus thrilling plots filled with violence, murder and crime, most viewers were -- and still are -- captivated while watching them. Add suspenseful psychological and visual elements as well as stylistic presentation, mistaken identity, characters wrongfully accused --and the wow factor definitely kicks in while viewing a Hitchcock film.        

Topics covered in this lively presentation include the secret to Hitchcock’s success, his five greatest movies, actors who delivered the best performances in Hitchcock films, why he is so revered as a filmmaker, his movies that bombed, and favorite anecdotes about Hitchcock.

Among the films discussed are VERTIGO, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, DIAL M FOR MURDER, THE BIRDS, PSYCHO, REBECCA, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, ROPE,  39 STEPS, SHADOW OF A DOUBT, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY, I CONFESS, NOTORIOUS, REAR WINDOW, LIFEBOAT, UNDER CAPRICORN, TOPAZ.

HOST: Betty Jo Tucker
