Alfred Hitchcock's films were shot in the most professional manner around at the time. Hitchcock was notorious for his professionalism, keen eye and ability to maximize even the simplest of stages and presenting them to the viewer in a way that made them look bigger and better then they actually were.
The British Film Institute agree, calling Hitchcock ‘the most influential and iconic British director of all time’, and giving over five months of the BFI Southbank’s schedule to a celebration of his work, titled The Genius of Hitchcock. Featuring screenings of all of his films (except The Mountain Eagle, which has been lost to time), the Genius of Hitchcock season is rather overwhelming to behold. There are recently rediscovered films that haven’t been screened in decades, revamps of old classics with new, specially-composed scores, and a whole host of tie-in events, workshops and talks.
Yes, Hitchcock's films were very popular, and still are, because of their quality. Have you seen ''The Birds'' or ''Vertigo'' or ''Psycho''? When you are watching these movies it seems like you are a part of their plot. His films are very professional and realistic in a way that makes people somehow engaged and thus frightened.
