Feel like dropping us a note and telling us how great we're doing?  Or maybe that we have no idea what the heck we're doing and should shut down the whole thing?   Perhaps just a suggestion or two?

Well, drop us a line and let us know!  Don't be shy.  We can take it.  Especially if it's praise.  We eat that stuff up!

TFR Ep. 152: Hitchcock, The Girl, Inventory Of Hitchcock Stuff

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, we're right in my wheel house.  Alfred Hitchcock.  Possibly my all time favorite director.  No one brought more style, wit, and suspense to the screen during their lifetime.  To hell with Scorsese not winning an Oscar (which he eventually did).  But Hitch? Never.  Sure he got some life time achievement award, but that's a BS move.  Ranting aside, this week we returned to our old format of two films.  The first, 'Hitchcock'.  Starring Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren where we get the real, somewhat fictionalized, story of the making of the classic 'Psycho'.  But exactly how interesting can a movie about the making of a movie be?  We also watched the HBO Film 'The Girl'.  The tawdry tale of Tippi Hedren's nightmare filming of the last Hitchcock classics, 'The Birds' and 'Marnie'.  Does this inside look of another part of Hitch's career paint an even more detailed picture of the director?  We'll review the big releases for Tuesday, December 18th.   The last big holiday releases.  Then it's possibly the mot unique Inventory we've done.  Our Top 5 Hitchcock Things.  So enjoy another episode, and maybe stay on the highway this time instead of staying in one of those remote motels off the drag.  We’re The First Run.
