LOVE the movie! My parents were huge Hitchcock fans when I was a kid, and I've seen Rear Window many times. It is a suspenseful classic, still amazing after all these years. Hitchcock loved Jimmy Stewart, and this movie is a good example why he did.

To answer your song question, I've been singing Sarah McLachlan's "Sweet Surrender" all day and learning it on my guitar.

Have a nice weekend, Annie!

You're parents love for Hitchcock must have been fantastic for you. I watched them with my son too when he was younger.

Years ago, one of my drama professors asked the class on the first day what our favorite movie of all time was and everyone said 'Gone With The Wind', but when I uttered 'Rear Window', my classmates looked at me in unison and asked, "What movie is that?" That was in 1983.

Isn't that a shame? Right then and there I immediately decided my children would watch every Hitchcock movie I could find, and we had a blast.

I can only imagine watching the films in the theater and my parents being fans- that's cool.

And yes, he did love Jimmy Stewart and yes this movie is a great example of why he did- as is Vertigo.

Everything about Hitchcock's movies were perfect, but Rear Window is my favorite.

I also play the guitar and you made me want to learn "Sweet Surrender." It's a great song. I found the lyrics and tabulature to Sarah McLachlan's Sweet Surrender on Guitar.com. Here's the link: http://guitar.about.com/od/individualsongtablyrics/p/Sweet_Surrender.htm

It's on guitar.com

Now that song will be in my head all day.

Thanks for stopping by Rock Star~

And by the way, I like that you called me Annie out of the blue like that. It's funny because all of my close friends, well... just about everyone with the exception of friends on the internet call me Annie. Isn't that bizarre?

So yes, it's fine that you call me Annie and thank you for asking.

Rock Star is the new affectionate reference I've been using lately, although I think you may really be a Rock Star-

Hence, have a great and fun day, Rock Star~

Cheers~ Annie

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
