It’s been 34 years since Alfred Hitchcock’s passing and his influence still looms large, such as TV shows like “Bones,” which will present an homage to the director for its 200th episode. The tributes to the self-described traditional filmmaker don’t end there, as editor Shaun Higgins has crafted a nearly 13-minute long video tribute to the Master of Suspense.
Covering the entirety of his big-screen career —which that means no “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” —the video contains shots from every single film Hitchcock directed, from the 1925 silent film “The Pleasure Garden” to Hitch’s last film, the disappointing 1976 comedy-thriller “Family Plot.” This may be the first time a tribute video finds itself impervious to criticisms of omitted films, though you may still be miffed that your favorite moment or shot isn’t accounted for.
Watch “Alfred Hitchcock (1925 – 1976)” below and let us know what some of your favorite Hitchcock movies are. [35MM]
