Where you would rate The Wrong Man?- I think Scorsese mentions it as one of his favorite Hitchcock films (apart from Vertigo, of course).

Glad to see Marnie near the top, by the way: it's reputation is undeserved.

Psycho would be my number one. The character focus shift was brilliant. North by Northwest and Rear Window could come after that. Shadow of a Doubt, his own favorite, would be 4th. The 39 Steps and The Birds tie for 5th. I haven't seen a lot of these in a very long time. Great post!
