    I always thought that Psycho was a bit overrated and a little slow.

    I always liked the Birds. I can actually see one of these days those little ****ers coming after us.

    I voted Rear Window, however the choice is nearly impossible there are so many good ones listed, and not listed.

    I've never seen Rear Window or Saboteur. I enjoyed Vertigo and I actually saw it online the other day.

    Rope is a good one - the camera shots alone make it unbelievable.

    1) Vertigo
    2) Rear Window
    3) North By Northwest

    Hottest Hitchcock actress is Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief. "You want a leg or a breast?"

    I watched 20 Hitchcock movies last summer in a Hitchcock binge. What a great, great, great collection of movies.

    North by Northwest was my favorite...but I voted for Rebecca because i think it's seriously underrated and never gets mentioned
