August 13 is the birthdate of English film director and producer Alfred Hitchcock. He directed more than 50 films over a period of six decades, most of which include depictions of violence, miscellaneous crimes including murder, psychological examinations of character and strong sexual undertones. Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” (1958) was just ranked as the best film of all time by the British Film Institute’s Sight & Sound magazine, displacing Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” (1941), which had occupied the top spot in the once-a-decade list since 1962.
