Noth by Northwest, though I'm torn between that and Psycho (and Vertigo, and Rear Window... hell they're all the best ).

Does anyone know if the same master was used for the Shadow of a doubt transfer for R2 and R1?
Rewind list the regions as the same but I just want to be sure as there have been several anomolies between regions ("The Birds" springs to mind)!

btw my fav Hitch is prolly "Rear Window", gets better and more enjoyable each time I see it!

cheers
Rich

Vertigo is, in my opinion, "the best" and I also unsurprisingly rate Rear Window very highly. However, I think the most underrated is Marnie. It doesn't seem to work for a lot of fans, but for some reason it gets right under my skin... one of my favourite films by any director.

Rear Window and North By Northwest are my personal favs

Personaly i think Rear Window is was of the greatest films ever made and will look, at anyone who says they dont like it, in a strange way

Am about to watch 39 steps have never seen it before, hope i like (why i have fished this thread out Alan )

I adore Dial M for Murder for some reason - ironically one of Hitchcock's least purely "Hitchcockian" films, but an interesting change of pace and absolutely marvellously constructed. Of the bona fide Hitchcock efforts, I'd probably go for North by Northwest, but ask me again once I've seen his whole filmography.

Vertigo, all the way.

I get lost in it... it's barely a film at all... but a hazy, melodic, narcotic dream.

Rear Window especially for Grace Kelly and her first scene, kissing James Stewart awake from a soaked reverie. Pure cinema, couldn't be done in any other form.

Vertigo for Scottie and Hitchcock, Hitchcock, Hitchcock all the damn way through the "movie" like the words in a stick of rock.

"Notorious" gets better and better every time I see it.

I seem to have posted in this thread three years ago but I'll post again anyway.

Best early period: The 39 Steps
Best Selznick: Notorious
Best Golden Age: Vertigo
Best Entertainment: North By Northwest
Best Late Period: Frenzy

All the above get better the more I watch them. Love most of Hitch's work though. I even have plenty of time for "Topaz" - the supporting cast just about atone for the appalling leads.
