  1. As a longtime Hitchcock fan and relatively recent blogger, I'm wowed by the excellent cornucopia of Hitchcock movie blog posts in CMBA's blogathon! I'm glad today is a holiday so I can read them all at my leisure. :-) Great job, everyone! By the way, I noticed you're shy a STRANGERS ON A TRAIN review, so if you're interested.... :-)

    Keep those great posts coming!

  2. I've had the pleasure of reading everyone's blogs and I'm so happy to not only be apart of the Blogathon but amongst such amazing writers and lovers of Hitchcock and Old Hollywood.
    What a fun day it's been so far.

  3. Thanks again for organizing this blogathon :)

  4. Rick,

    I just want to thank you for organizing this blogathon. It gave me the chance to visit many blogs for the first time and I must say there is a high level of knowledge and enthusiasm in this group. The film selection was great and I had a lot of fun reading everyone's opinions and thoughts. It also makes me want to revisit some films that I have not seen in a long time.
    Thanks again!

  5. I am hoping this will be an annual event. I had fun writing and then reading all the comments. Next year, "Hitchcock, The Silent Era."

  6. Rick,

    What fun! We should have more blogathons. :)
