Episode 56: Mutter Mutter Mutter KNIFE

0056 HitchcockThis week, dear listeners, we set Melissa loose on early Hitchcock films! Why? Because she’s seen them all, and can tell you which ones are the best of the Master of Suspense’s early years.

If you would like to drink along with us, we recommend Esprit Barville Cotes du Rhone wine, which has those little hat-like marks over several letters when written correctly. Or, if you don’t have any of that, you can always go for Hitch’s favorite: brandy.

  1. I saw “The 39 Steps” and “The Lady Vanishes” when I was barely into my teens. I remember enjoying them, but I don’t remember much about them… I should refresh my memory, by the sound of it.

    As for “Rebecca,” it sounds like the folks who did the wonderfully-MST3k’d film “The Screaming Skull” owe Hitchcock a debt. Also, possibly, a sincere apology. 🙂
