Good evening and welcome to the virtual birthday celebration for one Mr. Alfred Hitchcock. On Monday, August the 13th, Alfred will be 113 years old. Although he’s not quite as sprightly as he once was, his films haven’t aged a bit. And so to celebrate this occasion, you are being cordially invited to test your memory of Hitch’s films by taking part in this party-ish quiz. Please think responsibly.
Good luck, Mr. Thornhill, wherever you are…Take the Quiz!
(*The quiz title was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest: “Something wrong with your eyes?” “Yes”, says the sunglass-clad Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant), “They’re sensitive to questions”. Previously, Roger’s assailants pretended to Roger that his early, forced and drunken departure via automobile was of his own free will: “It was a dull party. You didn’t miss a thing.”)
Love it! I was getting ready to take the quiz and realized I didn’t know hardly any of the answers. Ha! Anyway, I’ve been a Hitch fan for years now. Favorites are “North by Northwest” and “Rear Window.” Also, last I checked the entire run of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” streams on Netflix.
BTW, I blog about film, music, and books at NotSoMainstream.com.
These quizzes are really good, but alas, I’m still averaging only a C in this class.
