National Alfred Hitchcock Day, on March 12, celebrates the man behind the movies. Many critics consider Hitchcock to be the greatest filmmaker of all time. His movies may appear a bit dated now (he started when there were only silent movies!), but they still hold a lot of power. (I know you probably think I’m ridiculous, but most of his movies scare me!)
In my opinion, Hitchcock is also the only director and producer that grasped a very important concept. In his own words:
“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”
By the way, before you celebrate National Alfred Hitchcock Day with a nice evening movie, you should take a long afternoon nap to celebrate Napping Day. Napping Day is held every year after Daylight Savings Time causes us to spring forward and lose an hour of sleep. So, I propose an afternoon nap, followed by dinner and a movie – Hitchcock, of course.
