  • Fridays With Hitchcock

    Today I'm re-running MR. & MRS. SMITH - Hitchcock's only rom-com. Lots of great screenwriting lessons...

      Not a huge Hitch fan but there's a ton of material on him. Many good writing & filmmaking lessons to be learned from studying his work.

      I checked out a book called "Hitchcock at Work" from the library and thought of Bill & his series.

          August 12th - a NEW entry, with FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940) - some great examples of set pieces, gags, how to use speeches, leading the audience, and 3D bad guys.

          Hope to have another new entry next week with JAMAICA INN...

            Foreign Correspondent can be seen at www.imdb.com in its entirety for free here:

            http://www.imdb.com/video/hulu/vi3297090585/

            This is what I'll be watching for my Saturday Night Movie tonight.

            I knew they had a number of TV shows you can watch gratis, such as Kojak and others, but I'm just discovering their full-length offerings via Hulu.

            Obviously I'm coming in late compared to those who are hip to this. For example, I found Hitchcock's '35 spy film Secret Agent there the other day and on a flyer thought I'd check to see what else they had and found Foreign Correspondent and scores of his old TV shows too.

            I'm going to do some more exploring, but does anyone know how to cross reference this resource to find a line up of all of the quality films they have for free?

            Or do I just go to Hulu?

            Thanks and happy viewing.

              Found Videos > Full-Length Movies at imdb and this might be their X marks the spot.

              Any other leads of this sort, however, is appreciated.

                I don't have a list of Hulu movies, and their system is kind of a mess (based on # of views, so anything with "sex" in the title is in the top 10).

                But new entries in my Fridays With Hitchcock series will cover the British period, and I believe all of those are PD and available free somewhere... so maybe I'll track down links for the movies and include them.

                  Bill and all:

                  It's easy.

                  1. www.imdb.com

                  2. Go to the fourth hyperlink at the top: Videos

                  3. Open the drop down menu and go to Videos Home or Browse Videos

                  4. You're taken to a page where you can see thumbnails of videos for TV shows, films, and trailers.

                  5. Click on Full Length Movies on the left (or TV shows if that's what you want).

                  6. You're taken to a page where they start listing films staring with #s or the alphabet. They also have alphabetical links at the top to search by title.

                  7. You can also visit the page of your favorite film and see if they have a thumbnail of your film there (Full Movie).
