August 13 is Alfred Hitchcock’s birthday, which inspired today’s #tbt. This master of suspense is responsible for numerous classic films (think “Psycho,” “North by Northwest,” “Vertigo,” and “Rear Window“). If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out a Hitchcock film, now is the time to remedy that.
We have a lot of books about this famous director. Feel free to stop by and check some of them out!
