| Johansson nails the shower scene!
1/12/18. A nicely done biopic about Hitchcock and his relationship with his wife, a loyal collaborator through thick and thin. The movie basically concentrated on Hitchcock's attempt to stay solvent why staying true to his craft in his development of the movie Psycho from the book. Hopkins was amazing as Hitchcock and got his diction down pat, Mirren was a wonderful Mrs. Hitchcock. Supporting cast was fantastic. Kudos to Johansson who nailed the shower scene perfectly. Worth catching!

Trivia

Many believe that real-life murderer Ed Gein inspired the character Norman Bates in the original Robert Bloch novel "Psycho", but this was not the case. Novelist Robert Bloch had already begun writing the book before the Gein murders were discovered. Once they had made the papers, however, the author noted the similarities between Bates and Gein. Gein was the inspiration for the character of Jame Gumb (Buffalo Bill) in Thomas Harris' novel "The Silence of the Lambs", which featured Sir Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the movie version. Michael Wincott, who played Gein in this movie, also played a similar killer in Along Came a Spider (2001).


Quotes

Henry Gein: It's lucky it didn't reach the house.
Ed Gein: Yeah.
Henry Gein: You know, there's gonna be a lot more jobs at that factory in Milwaukee come June. I could put in a word.
Ed Gein: You can't leave us, Henry. She needs us both.
Henry Gein: Can you stop being a mama's boy for one second? I'm ...


Goofs

When Hitch is being shaved, sometime after the North by Northwest (1959) premiere (8 July 1959), Peggy tells him that 20th Century Fox is offering him to direct The Diary of Anne Frank (1959). "Diary" was already finished and premiered in March 1959, so such an offer would not have been made in that same year.


Crazy Credits

As Hitch addresses his audience at the end of the picture, he tells us that he is bereft of ideas for his next picture... then a large, black bird lands on his shoulder.
