Pageviews past week

They don’t call Alfred Hitchcock The Master of Suspense for nothing. In this movie he out does himself with suspense and surprise. There are two great surprises at the end one including a wonderful camera shot. 

Ingrid Bergman is beautiful as usual and Gregory peck is his always-handsome self. The two make a perfect on screen duo and sizzled up my computer screen like nobody’s business. The supporting cast is excellent too and completes this 111-minute movie perfectly. One actor was even Oscar nominated.  

     The movie did win an Oscar for its fantastic score. The music was nothing short of amazing and kept you interested and on the edge of your seat the entire time. It was nominated for five other Oscars including best picture and Beat Director.

      The reason I have this under my ‘Dream of the Week’ category is because of the awesome dream sequence produced by Salvador Dali who was well known for his unique and unforgettable paintings. 

        This in not one movie you will soon forget. It is nail biting, suspenseful and as usual for a Hitchcock film full of surprises. All though it is a little slow at times that is just the style for that kind of film made in the 1940’s when it was made. I loved it nonetheless and will watch it again in the future.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
