Universal postpone production in wake of Paul Walker's tragic death
The Film: The Wrong Man (1957).
The Moment: Manny Balestrero (Henry Fonda) is arrested by police on suspicion of robberies he didn't commit, and is subjected to a humiliating interrogation.
Why It's Great: Working from a true-life story and shooting with rare docudrama realism, this is Hitchcock's most evocative expression of his own lifelong fear of the police.

Rear Window is still my all time favorite film. Just an amazing example of cinema. The scene where you see Thorwald's cigarette glowing in the dark should have been included. But for the first time I don't think the infamous TF top 50 list is long enough :)

For once a good list. Although I am laughing at the fact that the ending of The Birds is listed as #25 Greatest Hitchcock Moment, while it is also listed as #48 Most Illogical Movie Ending. Maybe Total Film's writers should be on the same page, or at least not make contradictory statements three days of each other.
