THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH – Hitchcocktober

PG  |  2 hours 0 minutes 

The debate still rages as to whether Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is superior to his own original 1934 version. This version features more stars, a lusher budget, and the plaintive music of Bernard Herrmann. American tourists James Stewart and Doris Day are witness to the street killing of a Frenchman they’ve recently befriended. Before breathing his last, the murder victim whispers a secret to Stewart. Stewart knows that a political assassination will occur during a concert at London’s Albert Hall, but his son has been kidnapped to keep him from telling the police.

ROPE – Hitchcocktober

The boys hide the body in an antique chest in the middle of their posh apartment, then perversely arrange to hold a dinner party around the chest. As the guests wander obliviously around the sealed chest, the killers make snippy, veiled comments about their deed, but their professor, James Stewart, begins to suspect that something is amiss.
