When does the thread on this begin? :)
Ha, would love it if Filmspotters would watch along with me/us! Pretty sure I won't have time to do any significant writing besides teaching-related stuff though this quarter. But here's the screening schedule if you're interested. :) (And if anybody wants to link me to their reviews of any of these, I'd love that!)

The Lodger - 1/9
Blackmail - 1/11
39 Steps - 1/18
Rebecca - 1/25
Shadow of a Doubt - 1/30
Notorious - 2/1
Rope - 2/6
Strangers on a Train - 2/8
Rear Window - 2/22
Vertigo - 3/1
North by Northwest - 3/6
Psycho - 3/8
The Birds - 3/15

I think it is past time for a Hitchcock marathon.  There are some others I'd like to see besides these.  Anyone up for a group marathon?

I'm in the midst of one, but probably just watching one film a month, with the occasional bonus. My current lineup looks like this:

Easy Virtue (1928)
Blackmail (1929) [silent]
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934)
The 39 Steps (1935)
Secret Agent (1936)
Sabotage (1936)
Young and Innocent (1937)
The Lady Vanishes (1938)
Jamaica Inn (1939)
Lifeboat (1944)
Spellbound (1945)
Notorious (1946)
The Paradine Case (1947)
Rope (1948)
Under Capricorn (1949)
Stage Fright (1950)
Strangers on a Train (1951)
I Confess (1953)
Dial M for Murder (1954)
Rear Window (1954)
To Catch a Thief (1955)
The Trouble with Harry (1955)
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
The Wrong Man (1956)
Vertigo (1958)
North by Northwest (1959)
Psycho (1960)
The Birds (1963)
Marnie (1964)
Torn Curtain (1966)
Topaz (1969)
Frenzy (1972)
Family Plot (1976)

Originally I was marathoning just his US films which is when I watch the absent Saboteur, Rebecca, Foreign Correspondent, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Suspicion, and Shadow of a Doubt but then I decided to go back more to the beginning.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I thought of your marathon, CD, which was fantastic.  I  :-[ didn't know about your marathon, pix.   Perhaps I'll just start on my own and invite others to join.

I'd like to revisit some of the greatest ones, weird ones I didn't get, and the handful I haven't seen yet (all silent I believe).

Thanks, and it's actually one of the few things I've finished lol.

I'm just putting my reviews in the director thread, rather than in a separate marathon thread. Same with Ford and Wyler.

Reviews of Blackmail [sound] and The Iron Horse forthcoming.

I have a few at home that I have never watched and I would be open to try them for a marathon. I would also like to rewatch some of the better ones, so I guess what I am saying is, I am pretty much game.

I never realised there were thirty months in the US.

This can't be the first time you've noticed that we do month/day

It's not. You may have noticed that I am prone to making silly comments on occasion.
