Episode 35 - Stage Fright
It's the 35th episode of HitchPod and we're stammering and blushing and forgetting all our lines as we discuss Stage Fright, from 1950. Is this Hitchcock's best 'minor movie'? Can 2020 vision be applied to film techniques from seventy years earlier? And in what way does an actor from this movie remind us of an England cricket captain? All these questions and more are answered. In the bonus podcast for our supporters, we Hitchcockify The Devil Wears Prada. Find out how to access that segment by going to https://www.hitchpodonline.com/support-hitchpod/, which is where you'll also get access to our previous episodes on Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Vertigo, The Birds, Psycho, Rebecca, Dial M For Murder and more.

Episode 34 - Champagne
For the 34th episode of HitchPod, we discuss Hitchcock's 1928 movie Champagne. Although, technically, it should only be called that if it was shot in the Champagne region of France. Otherwise, we're podcasting about Hitchcock's 1928 movie Sparkling Wine. In the bonus segment for our supporters, we Hitchcockify Titanic. Find out how to access that segment by going to https://www.hitchpodonline.com/support-hitchpod/, which is where you'll also get access to our previous episodes on Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Vertigo, The Birds, Psycho, Rebecca, Dial M For Murder and more.

Episode 33 - Sabotage
In the 33rd regular episode of HitchPod, we go back 85 years to Sabotage, based on Joseph Conrad's novel The Secret Agent. Despite this, Sabotage has nothing to do with Hitchcock's movie Secret Agent (which we covered in episode 26). Nor should it be confused with Saboteur (covered in episode 13). Because it's much better than either of them. Honestly, much, much better. In the bonus segment for our supporters, we Hitchcockify Speed. Find out how to access that segment by going to https://www.hitchpodonline.com/support-hitchpod/, which is where you'll also get access to our previous episodes on Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Vertigo, The Birds, Psycho, Rebecca, Dial M For Murder and more.

Episode 31 - Marnie
It's the 31st episode of HitchPod and we're taking a look at Marnie, a movie we've foolishly hired without checking its references. Will we pay for this colossal error in judgement? Almost certainly yes. Also, why can't Dan say the word 'zoological'? In the bonus segment for our supporters, we Hitchcockify Basic Instinct.
