Announcing The Third Annual Alfred Hitchcock Blogathon

This blogathon was not only a big success, but it was also so much fun this year and last, that I have decided to make it a yearly event. I will host this blogathon again next year. I do hope that you can all join me in celebrating Alfred Hitchcock and his films.

You can write about any of Hitchcock’s films. You can write about his TV series. You can write about Hitchcock himself, or about the actors and characters featured in his films and series.

You can write more than one entry if you wish to do so. I will accept two duplicates per film title. The blogathon will be held for two days on the 8th and 9th of February, 2019. Please post your entries on or before those dates. 

Just let me know what you would like to write about in the comments section below. Check the participation list to see who is writing about what. Take one of the banners from below and pop it on your site somewhere to help promote the event. Have fun watching Hitchcock’s films and writing about them!

  1. Maddie: As usual, great idea for a blogathon! I have an unusual request — may I write about Mel Brooks’ Hitchcock parody HIGH ANXIETY? I think it would be interesting to write about the humor of it as well as some of its missed opportunities for spoofery.

  2. Would I be out to lunch to try to compare and contrast Strangers on a Train to Throw Momma from the Train? I only ask since you are allowing “High Anxiety”, but I don’t want to open up a can of worms if that’s stretching the point.

      1. If you like Oscar worthy performances you should see Anne Ramsey as “Momma”. (She lost to Olympia Dukakis in “Moonstruck” but she was nominated.) The movie is a black comedy that was inspired by the Hitchcock movie, so it shouts for a double feature blog entry.
