When I was a child I watched this classic comedy several times with half of my family. I still have very pleasant memories about it.

Vertigo (1958)
This is maybe my favourite Hitchcock movie (others are Rear Window, The Birds and North by Northwest ). In this movie we have suspense and a touching love story. I enjoyed it very much.

Rear Window (1954)
I watched this Hitchcock classic several times as I was a child, and it's one of my favourite classic movies. Grace Kelly is so beautiful and the story exciting.

Nice story and good acting. I liked the overacting of Gloria Swanson, because that fits perfectly to her role as a faded star of the silent films era.

This movie made me a fan of Liz Taylor many years ago, she was such a beauty and good actress. The story is average but Liz Taylor and Paul Newman are the real highlights here. Burl Ives as Big Daddy gave also a good performance.

Touch of Evil (1958)
I watched the reconstructed 1.37:1 version from 1998. The cinematography is great, the actors are good, especially Orson Welles. The story is average.

Very good performance by Frank Sinatra. After Vertigo it's the second movie with Kim Novak that I watched.

This movie was shot at original places, in bombed out German cities, which makes it especially authentic.

Nice night shots, atmosphere and music - I liked especially the scenes at the river.
But the overacting of Robert Mitchum and some other actors was sometimes too much.

A simple funny comedy by Hitchcock. The star of this movie is the beautiful autumn landscape and cinematography.
