    I loved the movie The Birds but I've never heard of the other one's. I'm guessing I need to find these movies somewhere and check out the library. Thanks for the reply.

      I recommend Rebecca, both the book and the movie. If I remember correctly it won an academy award for best picture.

          Sounds like a future CD chapbook. Or maybe a "chaps" book (leather edition of course) !!! LOL!!

            I had to double check because I was not sure. It did win for best picture and best Cinematography but it was 1941. If I had not read the book and watched the movie there is no way I would have remembered it.

                You remember correctly.
                Incredible as it may seem (to me, at least), Sir Alfred never won an Academy Award for best director.
                Don't best picture and best director go hand-in-hand?
                Guess not.

                  You would normally think so. I just looked it up, and John Ford won best director for The Grapes of Wrath that year.

                            I bet they are not selling at Wal Mart. I am guessing they will not stock them.

                              Besides Hitchock's strong adaptations, du Maurier also wrote the Novella "Don't Look Now" which was made into an excellent movie with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in the early Seventies.

                              Great to see CD putting this one out! It's long been a tough collection to find of hers and she's an excellent writer. I'd also recommend both the collections KISS ME AGAIN STRANGER and DON'T LOOK NOW.

                                "Don't Look Now" made me hate red raincoats and short women... Okay, I love short women, but red macs are from the devil!
