The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
Hitchcock's remake of his own 1934 thriller. Many people claim to prefer the earlier version. But Hitchcock did not go to all the trouble to do it again because it had gone so well the first time; and he got it better, if still not perfect, the second time. (He did not, for comparison, re-do The Thirty-Nine Steps; a couple of other directors have done that, and foolishly.) James Stewart, Doris Day. 1956.
