Mmmm, interesting. That would certainly piss off the warden.

I hadn't seen this in a few years but when this Hitchcock Movie Club was first mooted, I knew this would be one of the films I'd choose. I knew most people would go for the more well known Hollywood films so I deliberately chose 2 films from the 1930's.

I much prefer the title Sabotage to A Woman Alone. My only quibble is it isn't apparent why Mr Verloc, is mixed up with these terrorists and what is behind their sabotage around London.

My DVD copy of the film was OK. I mean the film does show its age but I didn't have a problem with the sound.

Oscar Homolka plays the villain well, even his eyebrows are spooky.

In that video of Hitchcock on the Dick Cavett show, thatís the one scene Hitchcock said of all his movies he would have done differently.

I hope it was wrong on the website I was looking at but the release date for Australia is January 17, 2019. :(

I had a feeling watching the trailer that this could have a similar ending to Gran Tarino.

Clint sacrifices himself to bring down the cartel?

That was great.


If you have a spare 64 minutes, watch the Dick Cavett show from 1972 with Hitchcock. Very interesting.

Does Netflix in the US show many movies from before 1960?

There's about five or six only available here and a search by classic films bring up a lot from the 1980's!

Am I really that old now that the term "classics" now includes films from my lifetime? :o

Sean Connery, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Laurence Olivier, Henry Fonda, and Gregory Peck are some of the best golden screen actors, and then they're paired with royalty (literally) Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Kim Novak, Eva Marie Saint, the list goes on and on.

Did Hitchcock ever write an autobiography?

Or has anyone read a good biography on him?

That list of actors make me wonder did they rush at the chance to be in a Hitchcock film or Hitchcock chose them?

I'll check this one out too!

Bad memories from childhood. When you have a big brother, and you're like... 6... and there's one TV, you don't wind up with much say about the programs you'll be watching.


Not to mention if you happen to be sitting in his seat or favorite spot on the lounge! :o

Anyone watching the new Lost In Space?

The first episode didnít really grab me until the last 10 minutes. So Iíll give another episode or two.

I was never really a fan of the original, in fact I donít think I ever saw a complete episode back in the day.

I'm usually not a fan of black and white movies,


I've never understood this statement and it's not the first time I've heard someone say it. Some of the greatest films ever made are in black and white. To not watch a film because it's in B&W is bizarre. Why would anyone deprive themselves of the 1,000's of movies made in B&W. Crikey, I really must be getting old or something. ???

I just saw Harry's antagonist/love interest in The Dead Pool. Patricia Clarkson, in a very different role in a very different kind of movie ... She plays the quintessentially British grande dame in the quintessentially British quirky-folk-in-a-village-by-the-sea movie (directed by a Spaniard, and filmed in Northern Ireland and Catalonia): The Bookshop.

Highly recommended, if you like that sort of thing. And Clarkson's accent is as authentic (to my ears, anyway), and as thick, as clotted cream. 8)

I saw that film a few months ago. I loathed clarksonís character but she played the part really well.

Could Andy Garcia's role be uncredited?
