THE HITCHCOCK CLASSICS

This is an editorial from Vanity Fair from over a year ago (February 2008, The Hollywood Portfolio) but I loved these so much I had to share them. Based on stills from Alfred Hitchcock's movies, Vanity Fair recreated these iconic moments in movie history with actors like Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron, Emile Hirsch, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightly, Seth Rogen and more.
I love Hitchcock movies. I have long but seen them all, but the ones I did see are some of my favourite movies ever. If you have seen some of his movies, I'm sure you'll recognise a few of these shots. Check out the others on Vanity Fair where you'll find a short description and a link to the original still taken from the movie!


Charlize Theron - Dial M for Murder, 1954


Scarlett Johansson & Javier Bardem - Rear Window, 1954


Keira Knightley & Jennifer Jason Leigh - Rebecca, 1940


Emile Hirsch & James McAvoy - Strangers on a Train, 1951


Renée Zellweger - Vertigo, 1958


Gwyneth Paltrow & Robert Downey Jr. - To Catch a Thief, 1955


Jodie Foster - The Birds, 1963


Seth Rogen - North by Northwest, 1959


Marion Cotillard - Psycho, 1960


All pictures from Vanity Fair, photographer is Norman Jean Roy.


Which Hitchcock movies have you seen? Any favourites? Mine are Rear Window & Vertigo!

OMG. This editorial is amazing.

I'm not a fan of Scarlett Johannson, but the "Rear Window" photo is great. (And of course, it's my fave Hitchcock - who can say no to Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart.) But Jodie Foster looks perfect in the "Birds" rendition as well. She perfectly portrays coiffed 1960s fear.

Wow thanks for sharing these pictures! I used to love watching To Catch a Thief with my Grandma, I think we both used to have a crush on Carey Grant haha! And Oh my gosh, Marion Cotillard is absolutely gorgeous.

Ooh, this is such a fabulous editorial - especially loving the Dial M for Murder photograph. Charlize Theron looks stunning. I'll be honest, the only Hitchcock film I have ever seen was Psycho. I need to see a few more! :)
