ALFRED HITCHCOCK MINI-MARATHON
January 1, 2016  | By David Bianculli

BBC America, 6:00 p.m. ET

 

With Syfy showing a marathon of Rod Serling’s TV anthology show The Twilight Zone to start the New Year, BBC America, or some other network, could have done the same with Alfred Hitchcock, by replaying his anthology series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, as a start-the-year marathon. Some network should do that, next year. But for this year, BBC America is presenting four of Hitchcock’s best-known, and best-made, films, all day, in a loop of truly memorable movies. You can dive in any time, but I suggest the evening showings, which start with 1963’s The Birds at 6 p.m. ET. From there, it’s 1960’s Psycho at 9 p.m. ET, 1954’s Rear Window at 11:30 p.m. ET, and 1958’s Vertigo (with Kim Novak, pictured) at 11:30 p.m. ET. For Hitchcock, that was four classics in nine years. For you, it’s four classics in eight hours.
