Oh, those mozzies! I understand they're so big down there you could throw one on the barbie and make a meal of it! With some vegemite, of course.

Yep, they’ve been known to carry young children away in their beaks!! ;)

Yes, mosquitoes with beaks. It’s a hell of a sight. :D

20 days until The Mule is released down here.

I'm surprised I've made it this long without coming across anything on the web about it. Of course as soon as I see a pic of Clint or anything Eastwood related, I scroll past.

I've avoided all the posts here on the board in the news forum about the film too since it's release. That's tough to do.

It's like a mozzie itch! :D

One of the things that I'm noticing from some of these Hitchcock movies is that actors of that era, like Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart, had a charisma and a presence that I don't really see in todays younger generation. Eastwood also has it too, but does anyone agree with me about that? Can you think of a younger actor working today that has that?

Yeah, I agree. It was a whole different world back then. Most men these days wear suits for weddings and funerals only. Women are wearing less and less each year. They just don't have the same class about them.

Also, has Hitchcock ever explained why he does those blink or you'll miss it cameos in his films? I find it to be distracting. I'm glad Eastwood doesn't do that. Are there any Hitchcock films where he has any dialogue?

I don't mind the Hitchcock cameos. Eastwood did one in Breezy and who knows maybe he has done more? The Hitchcock cameo in To Catch A Thief is a little weird though. He doesn't even acknowledge Cary Grant, just staring blankly ahead.

SPOILER ALERT:






This was fun. I was convinced the real Cat burgular was Grace Kelly and it was a surprise to me when it was revealed who really was the culprit. AKA mentioned Grace's driving and it is a little eerie watching that scene.

Only one more film to go!!!!

The Artist was good but if we’re talking silent films, it’s Chaplin or nothing!! 8)

I just couldn't get interested in this. It must have got me on a bad day because with Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman, how could it miss? It was an interesting story but for some reason I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. :(

(EDIT:  Just looked up Charade and see it was released in 1963. That's a bit modern for a classic film. But, if anyone wants to give me ideas on when they think we should cut off the eligibility year, pipe up.)

According to Netflix, when you search Classic films on their search engine, films from the 1980's appear!! :o

Pay no attention to the crazy man behind the curtain! I'm sure we can do a mixture of both B&W and color movies.

With the help of youtube I'm going to get to view all the films in the challenge. The three films I didn't have or couldn't borrow, are available on youtube and I only have Spellbound to view and the final 2 bonus films which I said I have on DVD.

I know we haven't had a lot of participation in this challenge but I hope we can do another this year. Maybe classic films like Matt mentioned even though AKA doesn't like B&W films. :P

SPOILER ALERT:

I borrowed this from a friend weeks ago and have been meaning to post since then. I liked it and the ending is one of the best Hitch has done. You keep thinking the cops are going to nab Guy but right at the end the carnival worker says it's Bruno the cops should be arresting.

I wonder which actor (main or supporting) has appeared in the most Hitchcock films? Leo G Carroll is in this and I've noticed him a couple of other Hitchcock films as well.
