Ah.... Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense. Who doesn't love his films?  I've NEVER saw Psycho all the way through from beginning to the end. I fall asleep. So, for me it's Rear Window. A simple premise, lots of intrigue, suspense but a bit dated.  Who doesn’t love Jimmy Stewart or the gorgeous Grace Kelly or the funny Thelma Ritter? Next is North by Northwest (which thrills and delights in equal measure), Vertigo, Rope (that played more like a play then a movie), then his first Hollywood feature Rebecca, then Shadow of a Doubt. NEVER saw The Birds, it just never appealed to me.

It is impossible to choose just one, as Hitchcock is my all-time most favorite director.

Good choices for what to leave out (AH directed more than 35 films). I just ran a query to see the omissions (but it includes any film to which AH is attached.)

I also like that your list is chronological, so the poll taker likely has to search for their choice.

I concur with Nikolay's hesitation, and his reason.

Are polls searchable? I wonder which of my other favorite directors have such a poll.

bderoes,

IMDb does not have a means to directly search polls. However, one can use Google to search IMDb polls:

This is the general form:
site:imdb.com/poll {search-term}

Where: {search-term} is any search term.

For example, this would be an IMDb poll search for Hitchcock:
site:imdb.com/poll Hitchcock
https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ACYBGNTP92LX9-Tv2HCcnfv_xUFeIdb8tw%3A1568343433764&ei=iQV7Xe...

I (with the help of other poll authors) also have categorized the polls. One of the categories is Directors.

1-Psycho 9 (more like and (9.2)

2-North by Northwest 8 (nearly a 9 more likely an 8.7) I will maybe re-rate it to a 9 later

3- Rear Window 8 ( more 8.3 

4-Rope 8 (8.0 one of the only movie with the King's Speech that I would give an 8.0

5-Vertigo 7 (7.2)

6-  The Birds 7 ( 7.1 almost a 6)

7- The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) 6 (6.4 very average movie for me) 

Here are all the films (I have seen) of Hitchcock and their rating in my opinion.

I picked Strangers on a Train - recommended to me in the 80's and the ending just wowed me for its time.  Tough choice, though, for I love Ingrid Bergman so it was between the former and Notorious.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled The Birds.

My vote for this poll is "The Birds" As a 10 yr old boy, I was introduced to Alfred Hitchcock by watching this movie at my best friend's house who lived a few doors from me. I'll never forget watching the trees and sky that evening as I ran home giddily scared of being attacked!
