    1. Ah, always interesting to see your lists.

      The two I haven't seen are Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (though I've had it on my radar for a long time) and Calabuch (which I hadn't heard of, but seems interesting).

  2. Seen two of the films.

    I love The searchers for its glorious ambition and scenery, although I find it troubling in other areas.

    Jimmy Stewart in The man who knew too much is as always delightful. I will re-visit the film in my Hitchcock-podcast, during its second season.

    1. Personally I wasn't very fond of The Searchers. I might need to give it another chance though as I might've expected something a bit different.

      Ah yes, Jimmy Stewart is always delightful, you're right about that. Can't get enough of him.
