AISLE 2: FILM & MUSIC
Two of my favorite film directors of all time are Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) and Yasujiro Ozu (1903-1963) who are of the same generation and born just a few years apart from each other on opposite sides of the planet. What I find so fascinating about both directors is how they take locations and destinations in their films and make them actual characters. Hitchcock was a master at this in all of his films and especially with Vertigo and its location San Francisco, To Catch a Thief and the French Riviera and perhaps the most dramatic in North by Northwest where Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint take us on a journey from New York to Chicago to Mt. Rushmore. Below is a special movie trailer from YouTube with Alfred Hitchcock himself as the "travel agent" trying to promote his special "vacation" - it is a classic and in true Hitchcock style. Enjoy the movie!
