Alfred Hitchcock Presents

Alfred Hitchcock Presents

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” Theme

This week’s song was chosen because this is the last Saturday 9 before Halloween. Are you unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was born in England. Name another pop culture contribution England has made. All I can think of is the Beetles!

2) This week’s song is recognized as the theme to Hitchcock’s long-running TV show, but “Funeral March for a Marionnette” is a classic piece written for piano in the late 1870s by Charles Gounod. Do you often listen to classical music? I have the most horrifying recollection when I hear classical music. So even the thought of it sends shivers up my spine!! 

3) Janet Leigh’s shower scene in  Hitchcock’s Psycho is considered one of the scariest sequences ever filmed. What’s the most frightening movie you’ve ever seen? Not the most recent one… circa 2009, but the 1970’s Last House on the Left! 
4) Hitchcock admitted that he “never trusted birds,” and he took that fear and turned it into the movie, The Birds. Is there a member of the animal kingdom that just gives you “the creeps?” Centipedes!

5) Halloween will soon be upon us. Will you carve a jack o’lantern this year? Not this year, its been a rough summer / fall. Hopes for a better 2019

6) What candy will trick or treaters get at your house? Not out in the country. There are only a handful of homes out here!!

7)  When you went trick or treating, did you prefer fantasy costumes (like a storybook character) or scary ones (like a monster)? We never really had a choice! My folks dressed us up!

8)  Which candy was your favorite? Which one were you disappointed to find in your trick or treat bag? Tootsie rolls were the fave… pennies, well…were pennies!!

9) Which do you find scarier — cemeteries or haunted houses? Can you see the hair standing up on the back of my neck? They are both equal. 

None of last weeks comments showed up until just tonight! I  will go through them and respond. WordPress is disappointing me. I may have to go back to Blogger!
