* RaisedCatholic: Hitchcock was born in a Catholic household and attended school with the Jesuits and according to biographers was a practicing Christian till the end of his life, who even went to church regularly in his middle-years. Religion generally doesn't show up in his movies (with the exception of ''I Confess, The Wrong Man, Marnie'') but many scholars note that the notion of the wrong man, and sense of paranoia and suspicion probably does have roots in Catholic notions of guilt and original sin, and of course the association of sexual feelings with guilt and unease.

* ''Film/JamaicaInn'' (1939) – A pirate drama, of all things. Stars Charles Laughton. Hitch himself confided to FrancoisTruffaut that [[OldShame he considered the film one of his lesser works....]]
* ''Film/{{Rebecca}}'' (1940) – His first American movie. Producer David O. Selznick (of ''Gone With The Wind'' fame) convinced Hitchcock to move to America because Hollywood offered more money and better production values. Based off the famous book of the same name. A naïve young woman (Joan Fontaine) marries a wealthy widower (Creator/LaurenceOlivier), but the legacy of his former wife, Rebecca, haunts everyone, including her. The only Hitchcock movie to win Best Picture at the Oscars. Best Director nomination.

* ''Film/{{Rope}}'' (1948) – Another one of his “limited set” movies, and his first movie in color. This one is set almost entirely in a small apartment, and is shot to look like it was filmed in one continuous take. Two young men murder a friend, hide his body in a trunk, and have a party in their apartment while the body is there the entire time. Based on the infamous real-life Leopold and Loeb murder. Has grown in esteem over the years. The first of four movies he made with Creator/JimmyStewart.

* ''Film/TornCurtain'' (1966) – Michael Armstrong (PaulNewman), an esteemed American rocket scientist, defects to EastGermany. Sarah Sherman (JulieAndrews), his assistant and fiancée, reluctantly follows him. Armstrong is actually a FakeDefector, but the Stasi is determined to keep him within the East German borders. Has a scene that realistically proves how difficult it actually is to murder someone.
