Happy Birthday to the genius of Alfred Hitchcock, born on 13th August 1899. Passed in 1980.
Here’s a tribute from 2008’s Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio. We’re glad to share the shoots of these iconic moments from Hitch’s filmography, performed by these terrific actors:
Charlize Theron, from Dial M For Murder (1954);
Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem, from Rear Window (1954);
Naomi Watts, from Marnie (1964);
Keira Knightley and Jennifer Jason Leigh, from Rebecca (1940);
Emile Hirsch and James McAvoy, from Strangers On A Train (1951);
Renee Zellweger, from Vertigo (1958);
Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., from To Catch A Thief (1955);

Some excellent custom Blu-ray art for my reconstruction of Godzilla 1985, courtesy of Video Collector over on OriginalTrilogy.com. The first version is based on the original New World VHS box art, the second is a variation on that basic design with a white background, and the third is based on one of the Japanese posters.
