Vanity Fair Showcases Classic Hitchcock Moments in Photo Portfolio

Posted on Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008 11:05 AM by Scott Jentsch

Vanity Fair magazine is featuring a portfolio of 11 photos that are recreations of famous scenes from movies done by directory Alfred Hitchcock. Stars from Jodie Foster doing a scene from The Birds and Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem recreating a scene from Rear Window, to newcomer Marion Cotillard taking Janet Leigh's spot in Psycho's famous shower scene.

Just seeing the photos conjures up the images of the original movie. For those not familiar with the originals, the site offers a look so the new can be appreciated with the classic.

The portfolio is interesting to look through, but at the same time, it makes one recall some really classic movies, and the realization that for the most part, they just don't make them like this anymore. Hitchcock's movies are filled with suspense and intrigue, and it doesn't matter that the visual effects are rough and not up to today's standards. 50 years from now, how many scenes from today's movies will be showcased in a portfolio like this?
