A bit of Hitch, and a holiday

I’m taking a vacation, starting tomorrow, so this blog will go on hiatus until Oct. 11. (Yes, alas, that means missing a “Mad Men” Monday. But I’ll be back in time for the last two episodes of the season — “Blowing Smoke,” which airs Oct. 10, and the finale, “Tomorrowland,” on Oct. 17.)
During my absence, there’ll be plenty of Hitchcock in town: “The Birds,” “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” “North by Northwest” and my favorite, “Vertigo” screening at SIFF CInema Oct. 8-11, and “The Birds” and “Frenzy” Oct. 8-14 at the Grand Illusion. For those who love Hitch (and who doesn’t?) here’s a YouTube treat: his appearance on “What’s My Line” in 1954, just after “Rear Window” opened in theaters. I love his sly smile, and how he midway starts answering in French. Not that the panel was fooled.

Hope you all see some good movies while I’m away. See you on the 11th.
