Yes, we're all intimately familiar with the EIGHTY-YEAR OLD original, right?

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Yes, we're all intimately familiar with the EIGHTY-YEAR OLD original, right?


Anyone who is a fan of classic cinema probably is, yes, considering it'shiatchcock's only Best Picture winner, it stars two of the greats of the era, and is widely hailed as a suspenseful gem of the period. Even if people don't know it, they know it by reputation.

But if someone has never seen a movie made before 1987, no, then they won't know it.

The fun thing about classic movies, though, is that it doesn't matter if they're 80 years old. They don't all vanish off the face of the Earth after a few years. You can still watch many of them right now.

There's no reason at all to make a Hitchcock remake, when you only have to do what most filmmakers have done:  blatantly steal from him for your *own* movie.

Not a remake, and he was barely involved past check cashing, but I'd like to see someone treat this content to good, chunky short series:

I found a book that belonged to my dad as a kid in the 1960s, and had Hitchcock's name on the cover. Not knowing who he was at that age other than someone really famous for some kind of stories, I excitedly started reading it. Turned out he wrote the intro and nothing else.
