Announcing The 4th Alfred Hitchcock Blogathon

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well and safe. It’s been well over a year since I last held my yearly blogathon dedicated to all things Hitch. Without further ado you are all invited to take part in the 4th Hitchcock Blogathon. I do hope that you can all join me in  celebrating the Master Of Suspense. 

                          Two very different Hitchcock couples. Image source IMDb. 

You can write about any of his films or TV episodes for this blogathon. You can write about Hitch himself. You can write about his whole career. You can write about his TV series. You can write about the themes present in his work. You can write about the different types of couples in his films. I’ll take anything as long as it’s respectful. Articles, reviews and tributes are all very welcome.

If you’ve written about specific Hitchcock films or topics before, can you please pick a film or topic which you haven’t previously written about. I will only be accepting two duplicate reviews per screen title. No limit though on tributes and articles.  You can submit up to three posts each.

The blogathon will be held on the 8th and 9th of August, 2020.Please have your entries ready on or before those dates.If you can no longer take part, or you are going to be late, please do let me know as soon as possible. If you would like to take part, simply leave me a comment below telling me what you will be writing about, along with the name of your blog if I don’t already know it.

    Hi Maddy. I’m going to take part of that’s ok and get back to focusing on writing more. I’d like to go with Rear Window – a real favourite of mine and one which I used to teach in senior English. Hope that’s ok. And hope all is well with you!

    Ah and oops, read your post properly and you asked for new tips, so as I’ve done this one before can I look at the 1985 series of Alfred Hitchock Presents instead which remade some of the episodes from the original series with a “colourised” Alfred Hitchcock…

    Hi Maddy, I believe it was last year that I wanted to write about Strangers on a Train and then dropped out. So hopefully I’ll get around to it this time, if that’s OK. That is if I get my act together and my mojo in gear.

    Hi Maddy,

    Seeing as it hasn’t been claimed, can you put me down for “The Birds” please?

    My blog: In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood.

    Hi Maddy!
    I would love to participate and will do my best to find the time (and energy) to complete my entry.
    For me, it’s a toss-up between I, CONFESS and TOPAZ. Could I reserve both of them and let you know which one I ultimately choose? I’ll get back to you ASAP. 🙂

    Hey, Maddy! I didn’t see this earlier, but if it’s not too late, I’d love to participate. My blog is dedicated to the work of Rod Serling, but I’m a huge fan of Hitchcock. I’ve seen many of his films in theatrical revivals, in fact. I’d enjoy doing something for this — perhaps a post that talks about Hitch’s TV show and how it compared to and yet differed from TZ.

    Anyway, I thought I’d check. If not, well, there’s always next year!
