August Blind Spot: The Philadelphia Story (1940)

Instead of a straight review, this post is more of my reaction of the movie and the cast, so I'm going to include some observations as well as trivia from IMDb. There's been a lot of 'firsts' with some of the Blindspot movies I saw. Well, with this one, it's a lot of 'seconds.' It's the second George …

Alfred Hitchcock Blogathon: Torn Curtain (1966) – Flixchatter

Check out my review of Hitchcock’s lesser-known film, TORN CURTAIN, which happens to be his 50th film. Even the star power of Paul Newman & Julie Andrews couldn’t quite elevate this film to greatness.
