In this episode on Psycho:
To continue Fraidy Amy Month, The Madames are discussing Psycho, released in 1960.
There’s so much to say that they have to do it in two parts, with Part 1 covering a number of fascinating topics:
- How Psycho changed the way people watched movies
- The ridiculousness of the old Hays Code
- Ed Gein’s ghoulish inspirations for Norman Bates
- What audiences must have thought of this shocking film in 1960
Psycho is directed by Alfred Hitchcock and stars Janet Leigh, Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, & Martin Balsam.
