When we first moved to Albuquerque, the video store within walking distance of our apartment had a Hitchcock section. This was a perfect solution, because otherwise where do you file the Hitchcock movies? Horror? Mystery? Comedy? Romance? Over time, we trekked through most of what they had, but Hitchcock made a lot of films, so we’ve still not even come close to seeing them all.

When in doubt at the video store (there are so many bad movies, choices always pose such risk) one can always pick up a Hitchcock and rarely be disappointed. Saturday night: Stage Fright. Marlene Dietrich was delicious.
