It has been over 7 years since we released our first Alfred Hitchcock premium podcast, which was recorded at the time with the intention of eventually reconvening to cover more of his movies in a follow-up episode. We are finally making good on that promise this month with a second dip into the filmography of the one and only Master of Suspense. The discussion this time around includes Rebecca, Notorious, Rear Window and Dial M for Murder plus North by Northwest and The Birds. We debate everything from special effects techniques, memorable set pieces and classic macguffins to the use of 3D, Hitch’s treatment of his actors, the (questionable?) charisma of Cary Grant and the (unquestionable) beauty of Grace Kelly. Which Film Junk members will get accused of classitosis? Is North by Northwest the first Bond movie? Which famous directors have ripped off Hitchcock? Why must everything be a competition with Frank? Find the answers to these questions and more on this month’s premium podcast!
