Acerca de


The fascinating, behind-the-scenes saga of the making of Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece. This is the richest and most revealing portrait of a movie classic in-the-making ever compiled, from casting decisions to personality clashes, from anecdotes about one of Hollywood's most celebrated--and feared--directors to the truth about why the FBI needed to protect Janet Leigh after the opening of the film.

From Booklist:

Not only is Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho hugely popular and influential 35 years after its release; it also remains the main claim to fame of Leigh, who portrayed murder victim Marion Crain. Leigh here offers her memoirs of filming Psycho, including the famous shower sequence, to which she accords an entire chapter. Although she provides some fascinating glimpses of Hitchcock's on-set technique and other behind-the-scenes details, Leigh devotes too many pages to gushing about her coworkers and other inconsequential matters, to diverting but essentially trivial passages on how Psycho changed her life, and to her rather banal thoughts on the effects of today's even more violent films. Fortunately, coauthor Nickens is on hand to supply informative "intermissions" in which he fleshes out Leigh's comments, provides technical information, and offers background on Hitchcock. Rebello's Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho (1990) is a much better all-around resource on the film, but libraries where that work has proved popular should also see demand for Leigh's more personal account.
