The best Alfred Hitchcock movies of all time prove that he was one of the top directors of all time. Active from the silent era up until his death in 1980, Hitchcock has appeared in plenty of blockbusters and critically-acclaimed movies, earning awards and accolades along the way. His highest grossing movies have been well-received at the box office as well, as he was voted as one of the most popular stars for a number of years.

Alfred Hitchcock began working during the silent film era and transitioned to sound for his tenth film, Blackmail. Throughout the 1930s and ‘40s, Hitchcock produced a number of films, including World War II propaganda films for the Free French government. Following that period, Hitchcock hit his stride with classics in the 1950s.

During this time, he made his iconic thriller movies Rear Window, Vertigo, and more. Then in 1960, he released his best-known film, Psycho. Following that, his output declined due to health issues. His last film was 1976’s Family Plot, which received positive critic reviews. He also had many on-screen appearances in his and other director’s film, and is right up there with stars like Orson Welles and John Huston in terms of fame and success.
