What is Alfred Hitchcock?
The fact that I am the first person to write anything on Hitchcock is just criminal. Born on 8/13/1899, he was widely regarded as one of the best directors ever lived. With a reputation for making horror, suspense,and thriller movies, he's sometimes referred to as the "Master of Suspense." He is famous for using attractive blond women in his movies and making cameo appearances in his own movies. Hitchcock's most famous movies include: Notorious, Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, 39 Steps, Rebecca, To Catch a Thief, The Birds, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Dial 'M' for Murder. Upon his death on 4/29/1980, Alfred Hitchcock, among other legendary directors such as Robert Altman, Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa, and Martin Scorsese, never received an Oscar for Best Director.
Person 1: I watch a lot of movies. I am a movie person.
Person 2: Me too! And don't you just love Alfred Hitchcock?
Person 1: I've never really watched any Hitchcock.
Person 2: And you call yourself a movie person? How dare you?!
