In honor of Alfred Hitchcock's birthday today I put together a list of my top 5 favorite Hitchcock movies, as well as the ones that are streaming. Netflix, seemingly not caring that it is his birthday, has removed everything except the TV show Alfred Hitchcock Presents. While Amazon Prime has a fairly good variety: To Catch a Thief, North By Northwest, Dial M for Murder, Number 17, The Thirty-Nine Steps, The Secret Agent, Sabotage, Young and the Innocent.
Also, did you know Hitchcock has a romantic comedy in his collecion? Mr. and Mrs. Smith (in no way related to the Jolie/Pitt movie of the same name) is pretty great and totally worth renting if you haven't seen it.
Without further ado, here are my top five favorite Alfred Hitchcock movies:
1. Rear Window
2. The Lady Vanishes
3. Dial M for Murder
5. The Trouble With Harry
