It may not be first-rank Hitchcock, but even second-tier Hitchcock is better than what most other directors produce.

Made in an age when master shots often became a standard scene style, Hitchcock shows some real thought behind his composition.

A commercial and critical hit in its day, this Best Picture Oscar nominee has seen its standing slip in the ensuing decades, as it's never mentioned on any list of Alfred Hitchcock's best works. That's a shame.

It has a lot of great stuff, not least of which is the odd dream sequence, designed by none other than Salvador Dali.

One of Hollywood's most explicit films about psychoanalysis, Spellbound takes a dubious and contrived approach to the subject, but the stars (Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck)shine and their love story is enjoyable.

For fans of Hitchcock, it will be obvious that this isn't one of his best, but, as always, the atmosphere of suspense and mystery that he creates makes the film worth seeing.
