In Reply to: RE: Catching up with Hitchcock... there are MANY of his films I have seen.... posted by TWB on November 10, 2019 at 14:27:02
I have seen most of them but did not enjoy Trouble With Harry. Like Vertigo the best. Yes, Kim Novac.
And Wow - did the SF Bay Area look (or was made to look) practically uninhabited at that time! These days, there's no place to run, no place to hide!
And Kim Novak's character, "Madeline" - same name as MS. CfL's. And that music by Bernard Herrmann - OMG! It puts us in another world!
Sorry 'bout the small image.
It's heresy in Hitchland, but I find Vertigo off-putting and the characters
too cardboard and it's one of my least favorites by AH.
Frisco shines though!

Rear Window (in spite of the fact that I never liked Grace Kelly). But speaking of Kim Novak, my favorite two films of hers are Pal Joey and Picnic. You don't get much better eye-candy than that!
Ah! That dance scene of Kim Novak in Picnic, cannot forget after all these years.
to what she unfortunately looks like now.... Such are the pitfalls of poor plastic surgery... I prefer to remember her like this, in Pal Joey... As Joey said in the film, "the mouse with the built"....
Poor actors like Sinatra getting to act with Kim Novak must be some adjustment with casting guys. This sort of mismatch can be noticed in Hollywood movies of that era. Ingrid Bergman with Humphrey Bogart! Paul Newman with some great actresses!
