I think everyone has a favourite Hitchcock film, don't they? I passionately adore North by North West. I love the chase across America that ends up at Mount Rushmore. It also has one of my favourite actors of all time in it: James Mason. I'm also quite partial to To Catch a Thief. The location of the French Riviera and Grace Kelly's stunning wardrobe make it very watchable. But it is Rear Window that is without a shadow of a doubt my all time favourite.
The plot is so elegant! I love how there are two parallel stories: the romance between James Stewart and Grace Kelly and then the intrigue and mystery with the apartment block opposite. I love the way these two threads then come together in the gripping finale! *sigh*! And of course Grace Kelly is a vision in her Edith Head frocks!
And you? Do you have a favourite Hitchcock film too?
