    I don't know about anybody else but I am a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock movies and I feel it's my duty to inform you all that Turner Classic is granting my wish today (Sat.) with the following schedule:

    11:15 a.m. The Man Who Knew Too Much
    1:30 p.m. North By Northwest
    4 p.m. Psycho
    6 p.m. The Birds

    And I will be in my glory. By the way, it wasn't at my actual request, just my fantasy request. If there are any other fans out there, enjoy.

    Awesome.

    No Vertigo?

    Some consider that his best ...

    Vertigo is one of my favorites, too, Steak, but they ran that about a week ago.

    Just looked at the schedule, and "Notorious" is also on at 9:30 a.m. EST.

    But still ... no Vertigo or Rear Window.

    I never liked the damn Birds.

    Put on a football helmet and go get the mail, dammit!

    He's got a dozen better movies.

    I don't know about a dozen, but Vertigo, Rear Window and North by Northwest are all certainly better. All beautifully written films.

    The sexual tension and resulting dialogue between Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest is among the greatest in cinematic history ... ironic considering Grant was almost certainly gay ...

    They should show 1961's 'The Last Hungry Cat,' the greatest Sylvester-and-Tweetie cartoon, which spoofs 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents.'

    The 39 Steps is very, very good for its time. Made in 1935.

    The four-player takeoff currently on Broadway is a laugh riot.
