Today's feature is Alfred Hitchcock's 1942 classic innocent man on the run thriller about an aircraft factory worker who unmasks a gang of 5th columnists during World War II. Fantastic climax at the Statue of Liberty.
They are having Hitchcock movies on all day on TCM. The BIRDS will be on in a few hours.

Love the scene where they are driving past the docks where the SS Normadie lies capsized — the implication being that the fire was caused by a German saboteur.

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both.)
Norman Lloyd (the guy on the Statue) related in an interview that after the screening, Alfred Hitchcock said “He needed a better tailor.”
I watched that as a kid and nearly wet myself at that final scene.

Norman Lloyd was one of the head doctors on St. Elsewhere.

The scene in “Spellbound,” where Gregory Peck first kisses Ingrid Bergman and a series of doors open in Peck's mind is little short of fantastic.

Saw the 1976? movie -Battle of Britain with Michael Cane.
Really enjoyed it . And it did not go over the top with
special effects but yet seemed so realistic. Todays movie
makers could take a lesson in their ever increasing amounts of CGI etc.
The part that sticks with me the most is the last battle scene — epic and sublime w/o battle sounds — just music while watching the airborn melee.

I’ll need to see that one. I bought a cheap DVD of it I saw at the supermarket but haven’t watched it yet.
