The big day is finally here! Over the next two days a large number of truly wonderful bloggers will be writing about all things Alfred Hitchcock. I want to welcome back those of you who’ve joined me before, and offer a warm welcome to the new bloggers joining us. 

Please join me for a buffet laid out on top of Mount Rushmore. Beware of low flying crop dusters and flocks of birds that you may see approaching us. Bernard Herrmann will be providing a suitable score for our Hitchcock themed event.

      Hi Christine. Thanks so much for this, wanted to leave a comment on your site but sadly can’t because it only accepts Google accounts comments, rather than name/URL and I don’t have a Google account. 😦 I hope you see my comments here about Saboteur.

      I’m glad you picked this film to review. I consider it to be one of his most underrated films. I’m not a fan of Robert Cummings, but I really do like him in this. The statue of liberty sequence ranks at number 1 in my list of most suspenseful Hitchcock sequences. It’s such a good film and I don’t know why so many fans don’t think that highly of it.

    My sincerest apologies for not meeting the time for this great blogathon. 😦 I have a finished piece finally and will post it regardless. Work commitments seem to be drowning me at the moment. However, I will spend the next few days reading everyone’s entries. Hope all is well and you’re feeling better! Regards, Paul

        This is embarrassingly late and doesn’t deserve to be added obviously. But I feel the public apology is warranted and I’ve made that apology at the end of the article. Your opinion and thoughts are of course highly valued as always. Hope you are well and doing much better. Regards, Paul

        Don’t be silly, Paul. I’m just happy that you still wanted to write it. It’s an excellent post and it’s been added with all the others. Thanks for asking. I’m still not well(ongoing thing)I’m afraid. Hope all is good with you.
