Fiction, Film and Fun: Hitchcock

Thursday, November 21, 2013  
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join CCAC's Jeanne Bergad to discuss Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello. Rebello’s 1990 book about the making of one of Hitchcock’s best known films tells the entire history of Psycho, from the murders that the movie was based on to the later films inspired by it. Since the book relies heavily on interviews with Psycho insiders, it contains a number of interesting anecdotes about the film. The 2012 movie Hitchcock (starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlet Johansson) is based largely on this book, although it focuses primarily on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife, Alma.
