I found a liking of Richard Dix through his films at TCM. I never really knew who he was until resently. I see that he (at times ) over acts but that is one of his finer points. Like in the court room scene in "Cimarron" when defending Dixie, with his head (full of curls) shaking it to enunciate eve...

I'll add "Torn Curtain" to that list. Hitchcock films seemed to decline in the 60's. Maybe he was getting old and concentrated more on his TV show. I think the public expected more from him after "Psycho" and "The Birds".
