> 5. 'Rear Window' - 1954
> No trains here, but Hitchcockian voyeurism and obsession are on full

> plot, ingenious set and heart-pounding suspense highlight Rear Window,
> along with a fascinating look at the open windows of New York
> apartment life in the days before air conditioning.
> Read Review
> 6. 'Vertigo' - 1958
> I favor North by Northwest, but many see Vertigo, a brooding

> masterpiece movie. It's filmed in a dreamlike haze on the oddly empty

> 7. 'North by Northwest' - 1959
> This one's got just about every Hitchcock theme stuffed masterfully

Notorious and Strangers on a train my favourites, haven't seen all of
them though.
