More than that -- he was the creator of the Chipmunks, and the original voice of all three Chipmunks!
Wow, and his stage name was David Seville! I'm not even sure if I ever realized the Chipmunks were created in 1958! I grew up with the 1980s series.

I haven't watched the movie yet, and didn't read Matt's spoiler, but I do know what scene you're referring to. Or at least I figured I knew what scene it was when you mentioned that, and then SK confirmed it (I haven't seen that footage anytime recently, but do remember seeing the scene in an interview with Hitchcock and hearing his comments about it). I'm definitely intrigued about watching it now.

He wrote music for Alvin and the Chipmunks?! :D

And I don't know that I have any Chipmunk albums. ;D My family does have the Christmas one.

This is the only one on our list that I haven't seen before. But I do have it in a cheap set, which probably means the quality won't be the best.

I think The Woman Alone is a more interesting title than Sabotage.

Going back to the Hitchcock cameo -- Christopher might be interested in knowing what the pianist/composer did with his life after Rear Window.

It's music related (if you can call it that).
I'm intrigued to find out now.

On another note, did we ever find out why the dog had to die? What was in the flower bed?
I always figured a body part was in the hat box. Possibly the wife's head? Certainly a ghoulish thought!

The knife and the saw. He moved them before the ladies came to investigate, because the dog had gotten too nosy.
Oh! Maybe I missed that detail apparently!

Looks cool!

That poster makes it look like Miss Torso is in danger!

AKA, you mention the slower pace of these movies compared to what's out today or during our time, but did you like the film? Has anyone seen Disturbia, a 2007 thriller with Shia LaBeouf? It's about a teenager on house arrest who believes his next door neighbor might be a serial killer. It was obviously compared to Rear Window when it came out.

I haven't seen anything like that often at my apartment complex... in college I heard some interesting things at my apartment complex.

I also like that Raymond Burr has an important role in this. He doesn't have to do a lot here, but he really had great onscreen presence (check out an episode of Perry Mason, for instance).

That's probably close to the same cheap set I have of Hitchcock's early films, Doug. I can't remember if it was earlier this year or last year that I watched the 1930s version of The Man Who Knew Too Much for the first time, but I liked it.

Warners can release the film at any time in 2019, and a summer release would be even more likely to make money than a December release would be. Opening it on the same weekend as "Spiderman" is clearly not designed for maximum box office impact, since "The Mule" can't possibly beat a tentpole comic book release at the box office.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated film and not likely going to be a huge hit, or at least not as big as the other Marvel films have been.

Here's one link I found mentioning the release day:

So I take it that must be for wide release? That'll be nice to see another Eastwood movie before the year is up.

I haven't seen the show but I read the novel years ago in college. I enjoyed the book quite a bit (which was published in 1985).

Oh, and I just remembered that I've seen the 1990 movie version, which I also liked.

Frenzy is a top 5 favorite for me. O0

I've always found Kelly's Heroes to be a really fun movie. It would be my favorite out of those three.

I'd figured you might. I think I own all of those movies--now it's just to find them! :o

Fun schedule. I'm surprised no one mentioned Shadow of a Doubt. I thought about it--it's one of my favorites.

There must be a thing with Christmas movies and colorized versions. My DVD of the 1951 Scrooge also has a colorized version included along with the original black and white. I've never even looked to see what the movie looks like in color.

I'm not sure offhand if I've ever seen Sabotage. I don't have a rating for it on IMDb, but of course I could have seen it before I had my IMDb account.

I was thinking about mentioning Strangers on the Train, but Gant took care of that one.

I've mentioned my top 5 numerous times, so maybe I'll go outside that list.

I'd be interested in chiming in about some of these movies. But we're not going to do Hitchcock movies from the 1960s or 1970s? (And I realize there's only two movies he did in the '70s) Or do you mean when you switch to just classic movies?

I'm looking forward to seeing The Predator soon (I really like the poster antonis posted). I've enjoyed all the Predator movies.
