The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day has 12 vacancies. 12 cabins, 12 vacancies.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
At first glance you may think Psycho’s not the best Election Day choice and you’d be right… but consider one of the key lines of the movie. “We all go a little mad sometimes.” That kind of sums up the political frenzy we’ve existed in for the last year or so, wouldn’t you say?
Plus we have a big AICN screening of Hitchcock this week and I’m currently reading Janet Leigh’s behind the scenes book about the making of the book, so I just wanted to run something Psycho.
Today’s shot shows Ms. Leigh sharing a laugh with Hitch. I hope you guys enjoy it and I also hope my American friends have done their duty and gone out to vote. I know my compatriots on the East Coast have it a little tougher than most of us at the moment, but just remember that voters are still the one thing that scares the shit out of politicians, corporations and lobbyists, so do your duty and give them a good scare, will ya’?

No matter the results of the election, you’ll feel the wrath of tomorrow’s pic.

It's amazing how much Phoenix has changed since then, that opening shot is always has me looking for details missed previously.

I didn't see this show until the fall of 1976. It was presented during a Halloween party in an open courtyard as the sun was setting. Billowing in the distance thunder and lightning from angry clouds known for producing some west Texas tornadoes. The stage was set. The weather amplified the experience, but I still believe it was the shower sequence and the soundtrack which make it my favorite. Hope the upcoming bio pic is good, Quint. Thanks for sharing.

Obama and Romney are the same. Doesn't matter who you vote for, they both suck. Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize because he said he'd end the wars and close Guantanamo. He instead sent MORE troops into the wars and they still go on. About a month ago, Obama said that Guantanamo was going to remain open for the foreseeable future. He said he'd fix the economy too, but after spending more money than all presidents spent together (combined!), there are still no jobs and now there is an even deeper debt that the US will never be able to crawl out of. Romney would do no better. Fact is, the US is run by a dictatorship of non-elected officials from Bilderbergers to bankers, to special interest groups, etc. The President is only a show piece to make people think there is still a democracy and take the blame for what the Dictatorship demands of him. And they love to divide everyone into Right or Left so that the American people fight amongst themselves instead of rise up and take back their country. Time to vote for revolution!! And Psycho is a great movie..

quote:: just remember that voters are still the one thing that scares the shit out of politicians, corporations and lobbyists :: unquote Are you kidding? They love keeping us choosing, sheeplike, between their prepackaged fake alternatives of TweedleRom and TweedlObom. What terrifies the ruling class is the possibility that we might stop playing their election games and start building alternative institutions that don't draw from their bogus menu of options.

Up to that point, I think Psycho is the best film of Hitch's career. But the second half isn't as good. The boyfriend and sister scenes are especially trying to me. I think Vertigo, Rear Window, and North by Northwest are superior. (And maybe Shadow of a Doubt and Notorious, as well.) And I have no interest in seeing a Hollywood biopic about Hitch. I'm sure it'll have plenty of drama, but I imagine it would be much more interesting to see the story of Hitch coming to America and dealing with D.O.S. and fine-tuning his cinematic voice. The Psycho thing just reeks of Oscar bait.

God, I'm so sick of these campaigns. With the way this country's going, whoever gets to be President is like Thelma turning to Louise and saying, "Hey, it's my turn to drive!"

Who has their pants hiked higher: Alfred Hitchcock or Chris Christie? www.nonipplesonthesuit.com
Nov. 6, 2012, 7:24 p.m. CST
First time Ive really noticed a resemblance between the 2.
Nov. 6, 2012, 7:50 p.m. CST
My other favourite Anthony Perkins performance is in Orson Welles' fascinateing adaptation of "The Trial."

So true, Chauncey. I believe it came out on Blu-ray not too long ago. Gorgeous cinematography.

Crimes of Passion (Ken Russell, 1984), Remember My Name (Alan Rudolph, 1978), The Last of Sheila (does not appear in it, but he co-wrote this great mystery from 1973).

I don't even live in America, but I've had to endure relentless coverage of your elections on our British televisions. Our entire news network was taken over by live coverage of Obama's victory speech this morning. Enough already. B.t.w. great pic. Love Hitchcock.

Very interesting movie, perfectly cast
Nov. 7, 2012, 9:55 a.m. CST
Psycho 2 is a surprisingly very well made sequel.
Nov. 7, 2012, 10:21 a.m. CST
Look at Hitch in that photo. So relaxed and jovial. The studio and suits may have been nipping at his heels, but you can't see it there.
Nov. 7, 2012, 10:26 a.m. CST
Great Goldsmith score. It's not Hitchcock, there is some clunkerish plotting (teenagers fucking, Norman stuck in the attic) but overall, a better sequel than most, and a surprisingly creepy ending. Even the gore was shocking and effective. Hell, the opening and score for Psycho III has some great shit in it before the studio ruined it with Friday the 13th 'aesthetics' (I say that ironically).
Nov. 7, 2012, 10:33 a.m. CST
Why her career stalled, while her sister's took off is a mystery. Well not exactly.
Nov. 7, 2012, 10:46 a.m. CST
She has said, SHE let her career go, wasn't interested in acting anymore after dealing with a stalker. I think she married John Calley and began writing too. How she's related to Jennifer I'll never know; one is graceful and quiet, the other is squeaky loud and full of fun and attitude. If you'll notice in the Body Snatchers credits, Meg's body double says "Jennifer"...
Nov. 7, 2012, 11:04 a.m. CST
Hahaha Hitch. Can you believe those mindless cumquots voted that manchurian motherfucker in office again?! He he, I knoww I cann't beliieef it.

....the 15 minutes of my life I wasted giving the 90's remake a chance the other day when I came across it on tv.
Nov. 7, 2012, 11:31 a.m. CST
STILL have yet to see 3 & 4.
Nov. 7, 2012, 11:43 a.m. CST
I was wrong. Meg Tilly quit to become a writer and raise her children, NOT due to a stalker. And apparently her body double was some local stripper the director hired -- and Meg was not happy with his choice, thought he was thinking with his crotch, her boobs were way too big. Psycho III and 4 are largely terrible. III has a great Carter Burwell theme and an awesome opening and some creepy Norman Bates long takes, but the studio made Perkins shoot extra gore that was gratuitous. Body Snatchers -- I disagree, I remember thinking it wasn't half bad and setting a 'pod' film on a military base was esepcially clever, as soldiers are trained to be pod-like in behavior. Plus, Gabrielle Anwar is naked and that's always a good thing.

It's still remarkable to me how brutal the shower kill scene is, even though there is almost no blood or explicitness to the violence. You just FEEL what it would be like to be horribly stabbed to death in such a vulnerable situation. Anyway, and what a rack on Janet, amirite?

with a brutally bad ending. The shrink exposition is excruciating. That entire sequence should have been cut. The closing shot can stay though.
Nov. 8, 2012, 8:52 a.m. CST
Whatever. At the time there was no internet to read up on psychology and news was from a newspaper. If you didn't study it in school ya didn't know it existed. So having the doctor explain was aight
Nov. 8, 2012, 8:54 a.m. CST
Oh wait nobody reads and they don't teach anything these days we're fucked! Next thing ya know they'll elect someone who doesn't even have the qualifications of being American.
