AFI 100 Movies #61 Vertigo (1958)

This one is quite different to Rear Window (AFI #42) another suspense movie, but this time Hitchcock, goes for a more artistic approach compared to the realism employed in Rear Window.

Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak are very good in their leading roles, and Barbra Belle Geddes is also worthy of praise as the overlooked former girlfriend Midge.

If you would like to know more about what I made of this movie and Rear Window, have a listen to episode 4 of the Nerdology podcast.

AFI 100 Movies #42 Rear Window (1954)

I have only seen a few of Alfred Hitchcock's movies, but this has to rate as my favourite of the ones I've seen.

I'm a huge fan of James Stewart, who made quite a number of movies with Hitch, and Grace Kelly along with Thelma Ritter provide wonderful support in their roles. There are some great moments featuring the neighbours who live across from "Jeff's" apartment.

If you would like to know more about what I made of Rear Window, you could always check out episode 4 of the Nerdology podcast, which also covers Vertigo, also directed by Hitchcock.
