  1. Great list! I think I've seen--and loved!--most of the films on this list (except Under Capricorn--have to agree with you there!).

  2. Fun idea for a post! I do not think I have seen the films: Brief Encounter (1945)and Under Capricorn (1949). I will add them to my list of "gotta see films".

  3. @Brandie- thanks! And Under Capricorn is the one Hitchcock I hate!

    @Dawn Brief Encounter is a new favorite of mine; you should see it! (Watch Under Capricorn at your own risk!)

  4. Truly classic. Loved the list, it can be a reminder for me that I have to see those films I missed.
