The 50s were the golden years of Alfred Hitchcock. With five great movies on the list, he is one great contender to win the poll. We, as movie buffs, should thank also French cinematography too for three great movies on this list: Les diaboliques (1955), Le salaire de la peur (1953) and Ascenseur pour l'échafaud (1958).

Which of these Psychological Thrillers of the 1950s did you like the most?

Elevator to the Gallows, Diabolique, or Rear Window: wow, what great movies. And what a great poll, Migjen! And a good Halloween poll. :)

As you know, I love this poll. 'Still not sure for which film I'll vote (so many good ones!) but may I suggest a few small edits to the intro? (in bold below: 'just an apostrophe before 50s and I cut "too" because "also" is already in the sentence)

Wow, I thought this went live already. Sometimes when I sort of vote on here, I get confused and think I voted on the live poll, lol. I'm still thinking Elevator to the Gallows, Rear Window, or Les Diaboliques.

It's not a big deal at all, but I noticed what may be a little typo:

We, as movie buffs, should thank also French cinematography too for three great movies on this list: Les diaboliques (1955), Le salaire de la peur (1953)and Ascenseur pour l'échafaud (1958).

(Only one is needed: either "also" or "too.")

 Btw, that's a great salute to include in the intro, to which I respond, "Indeed." : )
