    I haven't seen much of his work (saw The Birds on a plane once.) Anyways, I'm interested in exploring more of his work, so if anybody has any suggestions about where to start, I'd be much obliged.

    Seriously... he has some great stuff...

    Obviously you have to watch Psycho...

    North by Northwest is a classic... as is Rear Window...

    Frenzy was on of his last films and it is very good as well...

    Vertigo and Marnie are a good watches too...

    To be honest, I've never seen much of his stuff that isn't very good although, strangely enough, I thought "The Birds" was one of his lesser efforts...

    Look for him, he puts himself into his movies for 1 frame and it is up to you to find him.

    I didn't notice thsi thread until now.

    I love Hitchcock's stuff.

    "Rear Window." Grace Kelly is absolutely stunning in this movie. Hubba hubba.

    "To Catch a Thief." Grace Kelly again this time with Cary Grant. Classic.

    "Psycho." One of many films inspired by Ed Gein, probably the most disturbing one even though the others are much more gory.

    "North by Northwest." Absolutely great film. Cary Grant at his best.

    "Vertigo." Jimmy Stewart was great in this.

    "Sabotage." Not well known, but it should be.

    "Notorius." Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. Need I say more?

    "Strangers on a Train." If you ever saw "Throw Mama From the Train" and laughed you need to see this one.

    He was a genius.
