One of the Sky Movie channels in the UK (which I don't subscribe to) had a day devoted to Hitchcock yesterday so I decided to have my own evening of two of his films.
First the much under-valued PARADINE CASE (1947) with Gregory Peck in top form, Ann Todd (a lovely performance) and the beautiful Alida Valli. Charles Laughton, Charles Coburn, Ethel Barrymore, Leo G Carroll and Louis Jordan were also amongst the cast in this well crafted and compelling court room drama. Great score by Waxman.
Then another of my favourites FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940) with Joel Mcrea, Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, George Sanders and Edmund Gwenn.
The windmills and umbrellas! Classic Hitchcock!
