Alfred Hitchcock

In a single decade between 1954 and 1964 Alfred Hitchcock would Produce and Direct a dozen perfect movies, most notably Rear Window, Vertigo, North By Northwest, Psycho, The Birds and Marnie. Although only accounting for a third of his career, this would be his “Golden Period” and with each decade that passes these films seem to get better and better.
