Spellbound not my favorite Hitchcock Film

Maybe I was just tired after a long day.  But I did not like Hitchcock’s Spellbound that much.  I love Hitchcock, and loved Ingrid Bergman’s performance as always, but the movie sesemed a little bit hoakie and Gregory Peck’s character seemed more like a Shakespearean fool than a typical Hitchcock character.  It seemed like an old, cheesey black-and-white romantic comedy than a HItchcock thriller, and I foujnd myself really not that interested.  AMazing, because I loved Notorious soooo much.  I’d be curious to read a little about the movie to see if I was missing the bigger picture, so to speak.
