Alfred Hitchcock and His Curious Dog

I don't have to worry about Webster doing this. I don't get the paper and he can't read. via I do love Alfred Hitchcock.
Hitchcock, Sir Alfred (Joseph) (1899–1980), English movie director. Acclaimed in Britain for movies such as The Thirty-Nine Steps (1935), he moved to Hollywood in 1939. Among his later works, notable for their suspense and their technical ingenuity, are the thrillers Strangers on a Train (1951), Psycho (1960), and The Birds (1963).

Hitchcock is one of my most favorite directors. His "Rear Window" an all-time favorite movie. I also enjoyed "Vertigo" but would have to admit that its filming location is dear to my heart..San Francisco and Muir Woods in Marin County across the Golden Gate.

I remember Mom taking me to the drive-in because she wanted to see The Birds. She thought I would go to sleep as I was only about 4 but I wanted to see the birds too. No nightmares;-)

He was a most interesting person. I always did enjoy watching his movies and especially his Alfred Hitchcock series that could leave a tingle on the skin. His dog looks like he's trying to read the paper, too, over Hitchcock's shoulder. Funny.
