"Rear Window" is one of my top 5 favorite movies. I've watched it so many times, I can quote dialogue; the ambiance, set, lighting, sound, directing, acting, Grace Kelly's CLOTHES, just make it a masterpiece! I watch "The Birds" just as much, mainly because I used to drive up to Bodega Bay when I had the chance & spend a day. It's great! The "school house" is still there!

What part did Pat Hitchcock play in Psycho? I know she was in "Strangers On A Train" but I don't remember her in Psycho. Was she a secretary in the office with Janet Lee?
texasluva musiclady1 1 month ago
Yes she was (Caroline). In the first few scenes in the office with Janet Leigh who played the part of Marion Crane.

Movie Quiz for 10/21/2022

An American Western. A trail drive is coming to an end, with the resulting payoff of the now out-of-work trail hands. A trio of punchers and an aging cowpoke decide to drift south and avoid the oncoming winter. The cowpoke hires on to ride the far-off boundaries of Flat Iron ranch over the winter. As he arrives at the upper range, he finds a woman and her son staying in the line-rider's cabin after being abandoned by their guide. He rides away to inspect the fence line, warning them that they must be gone when he returns in one week. There is a problem where he gets wounded and the woman gets his health back in order. These men show up that had gotten into a tussle with the cowpoke. They are bent on revenge and are about to make him an example. Also terrorizing the woman and her child. This is one heck of a movie and the stars in you all remember. One still acts today in a Quentin Tarantino movie just 5 + years ago. One played in Halloween. Our main actor passed on more then a decade ago. Movie around 7.2 rated. A good watch for sure. Lets see who can rope this movie down.

Instead of throwing you to the wolves with some Horror flicks today (I'll start them back up tomorrow, ha!). I wanted to show you a good movie just directed by Ron Howard. It's actually a true story and a wonderful one. Back in 2018 12 chldren and their coach got stuck in a huge cave and it flooded leaving no way out. Stuck for 18 days and only when the best divers in the world united and able to figure out a way to get them out. I am not sure you remember but I do. It is called Thirteen Lives. I believe they had to go at least 800 meters underwater to the cave where they were located. The near impossible becomes possible

Trivia
Diver Rick Stanton praised the film's accuracy, saying the one cinematic change was that the cave water was muddy. The real divers had zero visibility, but "That would be impossible to demonstrate because then the viewers would not see anything."

Jessie Royce Landis was also in "North by Northwest", playing the mother of Cary Grant's character (in real life she was only eight years older than him).

Also, I expected they'd include Pat's part in Strangers on a Train but perhaps that would have been too easy. She is a fun and rather integral part.
