 On the occasion of 30th death anniversary of Hitchcock, there are on parade of his movies on TV.
 
 " Rear Window" (1954 )   I like this couple in this movie, especially Grace Kelly was sublime!   8)

 " FRENZY " ( 1972)

 " The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1934 ) Original version for a first time. I prefer the second ( 1956 ) with Doris and Jimmy!  :D

I saw that film in 3D!  Perfect use for it, too, especially back in the day....  Hitch used 3D to great effect, at the end.

I watched tonight " Marnie " 1964 with  Tippi Hedren, Sean Connery........Bruce Dern and Melody Thomas Scott... 
Tippi is very different in this movie than in "The Birds".

 " Torn Curtain "   1966 With Paul Newman and Julie Andrews.

 For espionage like this, I prefer "The Man Who Knew Too Much" 1956 with Doris and Jimmy.

I just read something about this a day or two ago on IMDb. It sounds interesting, though I'm curious about what type of movie could possibly be made about the making of Psycho. ???

I do think Hopkins is a good choice to play Hitchcock.

I'd forgotten I'd posted this. I should have posted my review of the film here. :-[

Anyway, what I wanted to ask was about the film Blackmail. Having just bought the DVD, I was wondering if this film is a silent or an early talky? I was looking at imdb but I didn't want to read too much and get a spoiler about the film. Is there two versions or is it just the first 10 minutes that are silent?

It's a talky. In fact, it was one of the first British talkies, if I remember right.

Having begun production as a silent film, the studio, British International Pictures, decided to convert it to sound during shooting. A silent version was released for theaters not equipped for sound (at 6740 feet), with the sound version (7136 feet) released at the same time. The silent version still exists in the British Film Institute collection.

Quote
The film began production as a silent film. To cash in on the new popularity of talkies, the film's producer, John Maxwell of British International Pictures, gave Hitchcock the go-ahead to film a portion of the movie in sound. Hitchcock thought the idea absurd and surreptitiously filmed almost the entire feature in sound (the opening 6 and a half minutes of the sound version are in silent with musical accompaniment), along with a silent version for theatres not yet equipped for talking pictures.

Blackmail, marketed as one of Britain's earliest "all-talkie" feature films, was recorded in the RCA Photophone sound-on-film process. (The first U.S. all-talking film, Lights of New York, was released in July 1928 by Warner Brothers.)

Lead actress Anny Ondra was raised in Prague and had a heavy Czech accent that was felt unsuitable for the film. Sound was in its infancy at the time and it was impossible to post-dub Ondra's voice. Rather than replace her and re-shoot her portions of the film, actress Joan Barry was hired to actually speak the dialogue off-camera while Anny lip-synched them for the film. This makes Ondra's performance seem slightly awkward.

Ondra's career in the UK was hurt by sound. She returned to Germany and retired from films after making a few additional movies and marrying boxer Max Schmeling in 1933.
