People are surprised when I tell them that Stagefright is one of my top five Hitchcock films.
Why ? Well apart from the Alistair Sim factor; Jane Wyman had to have been the most charismatic of all Hitch's heroines [yes, even including Joan Fontaine's brilliant naiive perfection in Rebecca].
I never watched Falcon Crest [was too busy jeopardising my soul but splitting my sides laughing at the outrageous Kenny Everett on the other side] ; but let's face it : She was one classy lady !
p.s. We pray too for the soul of Anita Roddick who died suddenly today ; when all is said and done, she was a woman who cared enough to make a difference.
