Yes, I agree, Marie is an excellent choice.

I've seen Topaz Richard. I know it is often regarded as Hitchcock's worst film but it's worth considering that a poor Hitchcock film is still head an shoulders above a lot of films out there. Had this been made by any other director it would have been considered a perfectly passable political thriller but as it was from one of the great masters it does, I have say, compare less favourable against some of his other work. One of the biggest let downs of this film is the poor ending and as far as I am aware, shooting on the film began before the screenplay was even finished and a number of endings were tried, and failed, before the odd ending you see in the final cut was chosen in a desperate hurry to complete the film.

Well worth a look if it is on TV but I wouldn't make much effort to track it down otherwise.

I love Frenzy, i remember watching it last year when i was making sugar cookies, can't remember if it was Halloween or Christmas, i think it was Halloween. Seems im always baking. lol Frenzy is one of those less known Hitchcock films but it well worth a look! thumbsup.gif

Would be nice to see a DVD or Blu-ray re-release of Topaz with the other endings filmed. I think Topaz was the Hitchcock film which starred John Forsythe. I was thinking Paul Newman starred in Topaz. I was thinking of Torn Curtain, which Paul Newman starred in. Along with Torn Curtain, Topaz is one of the other Hitchcock films I've known about but have not seen.

A local cinema is showing Psycho on one night later this spring. Never seen a Hitchcock film on the big screen so I'm definitely going to see this. Also being shown at the same cinema soon is Double Take, a film which mixes archive footage of Alfred Hitchcock with new footage filmed with a lookalike actor.

Has anyone heard of a film called Double Take, which stars Alfred Hitchock as himself and an actor who plays an Alfred Hitchcock lookalike?

I enjoyed Topaz and my all time fave North by Northwest. I watched his TV shows mostly. He worked with some of the biggest stars of the day and was a master of the black and white media; Which is why I don't like the 'colorized' versions.

you can pick your friends... you can pick your nose .... but you can NEVER pick your friend's nose !!

MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT!
