A good movie

I mean, before that he already did direct about almost 20 movies but they were all pretty much obscure.

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"Alfred Hitchcock, who made both of these films, said: "Let's say the first version is the work of a talented amateur and the second was made by a professional.""
