Alfred Hitchcock is easily one of the most recognized names in cinematic history. Hitchcock has been gone for over two decades and yet folks all around the globe speak so highly of his work still. Recently, ‘Vertigo’ dethroned ‘Citizen Kane’ on Sight and Sounds highly respected Greatest Films List. Not to mention that Hitchcock has the most overall votes for his films on the list, and most votes as ‘Greatest Director’ as well. Alfred Hitchcock is most famous for films like ‘Vertigo’, ‘Psycho’, ‘Rear Window’, ‘The Birds’, and ‘North by Northwest’, but with over 40 commercial successes and almost 60 films to his credit, there’s a lot more to his canon than people think. Here is the list of top Alfred Hitchcock movies, ranked. You can stream some of these Alfred Hitchcock films on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
25. The Man Who Knew Too much (1934)
The first stab at success of these tow great films, and mostly unrecognized due to the size and brilliance of its remake (which was released in 1956). ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’ is the one of the best films of Hitchcock’s British era (pre 1940) and Peter Lorre (star of the movie ‘M’) delivers big.
24. Under Capricorn (1949)
‘Under Capricorn’ is almost unrecognized when compared to some of Hitchcock’s other masterpieces, but I strongly believe this film contains some of his best storytelling. This was his second shot at Technicolor (after Rope of 1948), and though it’s a weaker film, the shots came through much more smoothly and the two lead performances (Ingrid Bergman and Joseph Cotton) are very strong.
23. The Trouble With Harry (1955)
