The 20 greatest Alfred Hitchcock movies

Yardbarker Logo By Jeremy Smith of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 21: The 50-year filmmaking career of Alfred Hitchcock began in the silent era and concluded in the New Hollywood of the 1970s, where young filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma were paying tribute to cinema's Master of Suspense with wildly dissimilar thrillers like "Jaws," "Taxi Driver" and "Obsession." Those three movies perfectly reflected the full range of Hitch's work. It's remarkable the ease with which he segued from classically-staged suspense films to adventure yarns to searingly personal psychological thrillers. Hitch could do it all, and he did it prolifically, sometimes turning out two movies a year. With tat all in mind, let's toast the very best works from his 53-film oeuvre.
