Poll: Top Ten Hitchcock Villains

"Film your murders like love scenes, and film your love scenes like murders."

With such a stylish -and delightfully cynical- motto, the villains of Alfred Hitchcock could only be as appealing as romantic leads... and integral to the cinematic stature reached by the Master of Suspense. It's said a film is as good as the villain, then you know why Hitchcock movies are great... on an iconic level.

These are the ten villains from Hitchcock movies nominated for the American Film Institute's Top 50, only two made it (the first of the list) but that's not diminishing the others' value, one of them might even be your favorite villain.

Which of these ten Hitchcockian villains is your favorite?
