Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

This one is done.

I will not complete this goal. There are a many Hitchcock movies left to see but I have lost interest and have more important things to do.



Sabotoge (1936)

a good one… although the soundtrack is overbearing at times. As if the transition from silent film has not quite succeded.



Number 17 (1932)

This was one of the better Hicthcock efforts from his earlier years. Lots of Hitchcock patents in here..



Rich and Strange (1932)

Stars high pitched Joan Berry, a transitional film with influences of the dying silent screen age and the neo sound industry. Today, is worth more for its historical position than entertainment value.



The Skin Game (1931)

One of Hitchcock’s more pedestrian efforts..
Edmund Gwenn stole most scene’s he was in and was one of the few bright spots in the movie.



Juno and the Paycock (1930)

A screen adaptation of a very successful Irish play written by Sean O’Casey. Introducing Barry Fitzgerald in his first movie, and starring Maire O’Neill, Edward Chapman and Sara Allgood.
Hitchcock treated this screenplay with a lot of respect omitting many of his ususal tricks to plot and scenes in most of his work. I enjoyed the story and was intrigued by the historical theme throughout the film.



Young and Innocent (1937)

In the US this movie was renamed The Girl Was Young. Starring Nova Pilbeam, Derrick De Marney, and John Longden. The change from silent to talkies greatly improves the cinematic experience and adds another dimension to the depths of Hitchcocks films.



The Ring (1927) silent

The only movie that Hitchcock would receive a full writing credit. Starring Carl Brisson and Lillian Hall-Davis. About the only bad thing I can say about any of the Hitchcock movies is the soundtrack on the silent movies doesn’t enhance or even at times seem appropriate for the film… It is like the music is to break up the silence of the silent film and create added interest.. I will say that I think at the infancy of the film industry people like Hitchcock were more concerned with developing a story and creative ways to shoot particular scenes and had no idea how important music was to a movie….



The Lodger (1926) silent

Hitchcock calls this the first “Hitchcock” movie. Even if he is credited with two releases prior to “The Lodger”. I enjoyed this one alot. The story is loosely based on Jack the Ripper and utilizes the famed London Fog for added mystery and suspense. Starring June Tripp as Daisy Bunting, Ivor Novello the Lodger, Malcolm Keene as the ex-boyfriend, jealous cop.



Jamaica Inn (1939)

starring Charles Laughton and Introducing Maureen O’Hara. Maureen O’Hara lights up the black and white screen in a lively and spirited movie of suspense and intrigue. Apparently, the Inn is actual place still in use today. I will put the Jamaica Inn on the list of places to visit if I ever get back to Merry old England..
