message 1: by K.Hari (new)

K.Hari Kumar Kumar An inspiration he has been to millions... including me... The way he has adapted these fine pieces of literature onto the big screen without giving away any of it's magic... is the work of a WIZARD!!! Mr. Hitchcock, I bow unto you...


message 2: by Christy (new)

Christy The Testament of Judith Barton is misplaced here. It's fan fiction, written recently. The book on which Hitchcock's Vertigo is based is D'entre les morts by Boileau and Narcejac.


message 3: by Alexis (new)

Alexis The Paradine Case by Robert Smythe Hichens should be on this list!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add it; at the top, at the tab next to "all votes."
