#5 – No. 17
The promise of its trove is too great to let another get to it first.
Inspiration for Photo #5: Number Seventeen (1932), a movie with everything!
Number Seventeen is the weirdest Hitchcock movie I’ve ever seen – and I love every minute of it! It has everything – characters who aren’t what they seem, an old house full of shadows, plot twist after plot twist, the unassuming man, a priceless necklace, one of the most exciting chases involving a bus and a train (with some of the best editing too), lots of humor – and a gal who falls through the ceiling.
That’s when I knew I had the “entrance” of my next character. There’s a lot of dropping and dangling and physical danger in this movie. It’s a fantastic ride that escalates from the moment the detective ventures into the house and doesn’t stop until everyone’s in the water.

So… this is that photo when the very last image of this series comes around, I’ll say –
Remember photo #5??
And that’s all I’m going to say. Except – thanks to Josh and Aaron for giving me a lift to get this shot! And thank you to my Uncle Huey for letting me photograph his house in progress.
