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.

a good one… although the soundtrack is overbearing at times. As if the transition from silent film has not quite succeded.
This was one of the better Hicthcock efforts from his earlier years. Lots of Hitchcock patents in here..
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.
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.
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.
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 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….
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.
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..
