The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day is fighting a powerful impulse to beat the hell out of you.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Fantastic Fest is upon us. Exciting, stressful, super awesome times, indeed. Friends coming into town, much drunken geekery in store for the next week and a half, but don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten you lovely people.

If Hitchcock were still alive and making movies… well, one that would be a miracle… a super creepy miracle, and two, his new film would for sure be playing Fantastic Fest. Even if it’s an off film, like the one I’m featuring today.

Marnie’s not a bad film, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t quite carry the same verve as his other work in this time period. But then again, I’m the one guy who thinks The Trouble With Harry is way underappreciated, so what do I know?

Now enjoy this shot of Sean Connery flashing some leg while making a phone call on the set!

There’s a dead chick in tomorrow’s pic as an ode to the beginning of Fantastic Fest.

    No, Quint...

    You're not the only one who thinks "The Trouble With Harry" is vastly underappreciated. It's a delightful film, with a great cast, and some cool sight gags that have been reused in other movies for years. It's not my favorite Hitchcock, but it's up there.

    Hitchcock and Connery are usually great, but Marnie was a disappointment.

    by Christian Sylvain

    It's not even the ongoing sexist victimization of Marnie, or the relationship between the two leads that let's the movie down. It's just too simple and straightforward a Hitchcock film. Not really much there in the way of direction and storytelling, compared to Hitchcock's other works. Granted, I haven't seen Marnie in years, but from what I can recall, it wasn't very memorable.

    Second Rate Hitchcock is like...

    by Glenn

    anyone else's masterpiece of late. The dude's always got some idea baked into a scene, whether or not the film as a whole pans out (no pun intended). Check out Murder on Netflix Streaming; it's in HD and looks awesome!

    I echo you

    The Trouble with Harry IS an underappreciated gem and Marnie is disappointing. It's my mom's favorite Hitch movie and the only reason I can think why that might be is because Sir Sean is in it.

  • of Marnie. Glad he got that out of his system. Otherwise we'd had gotten an explanation for the Necktie Murders...he didn't get enough love from his mum, or some such.

    Trouble with Harry

    by SpencerBarnes

    Is fantastic. Love the theme, the characters, and the scenery.

  • How about a film about a legendary director's ghost haunting a movie studio? When the film crews and actors go home for the night, this ghostly director gathers other ghosts of dead stars from the area to make movies with while the living sleep. The film crew shows up the next day and sees that things have been moved around all over the place. The editor goes into his suite and finds new bits of film hanging up. When he plays it through his flatbed editing machine, he sees dead movie stars play across his view screen in a new film that he has no idea how it got made. More hijinks ensue when one of the ghostly movie stars from Hollywood's golden age decides to possess the body of a current and living movie star. A rampage of confused excess and hilarity follows across present day Hollywood. I guess it sounds a bit like The Purple Rose of Cairo meets The Sixth Sense.

  • ...but actually played Marnie's YOUNG whore mother, rolling around the floor with Bruce Dern in the climactic, gory flashback....

  • And there are absolutely no consequences for his actions...

    A good movie is not dependent on the protagonists being nice people. Nothing wrong in loving a good movie that portaits a bunch of shitheads. The only bad thing would be if people would approve of the bad things the bad people do in the movie. There's a difference, you see?

    Thanks scirocco...

    by deo

    Thanks for the info, I am aware of this. However when this movie is discussed, the rape is either not discussed or not discussed as something that reflects badly on his character. That's what I am trying to highlight.
