Seen It: Spellbound
I LOVE this movie! I don't think I can pick a favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie, it's like asking a parent which their favorite child is... It is just wrong! But this one if def. up there. I absolutely adore Gregory Peck (seriously he is so dreamy) and I can't get enough of Ingrid Bergman. She was such a beautiful talented actress! In this film Bergman plays a young psychoanalyst at a mental hospital. Peck plays a young doctor (Dr. Edwardes) being sent in to replace one of her older colleagues. Not too long after taking his new position it is very evident that there is something wrong with Peck. It is even believed that he is not really Dr. Edwardes and that the real doctor may be missing and even dead. The only problem is Peck's severe case of amnesia. He can't seem to remember what happened to Edwardes, but he does continually get flashes and dreams that prove to be great clues to his disappearance. Bergman of course swoops in to help Peck recover his memory, falling in love with him along the way. This really is a terrific movie, make sure to look out for the dream sequence that was designed by the amazing artist, Salvador Dali.
