(YouTube)   Anthony Hopkins is perfect in new 'Hitchcock' trailer portraying Alfred Hitchcock during the making of Psycho. He might have fooled me, but he didn't fool my mother, and a boy's best friend is his mother   (youtube.com) divider line 21

Hopkins is in that? All I could see was ScarJo as Janet Leigh.

I have just seen and heard the most obvious line ever delivered in the history of cinema at the 1:29 mark.

I really hate trailers today.

By the way, try the finger sandwiches. They're real fingers. Also, the Chianti is quite nice, too.

At first I thought you were referring to "Who do I make it out to?".

/See, it's funny 'coz you're ignorant enough to think he has that much money in the bank. But then they include the part where he mortgages his house, thus rendering the earlier part completely stupid.
//I. Hate. Trailers. Today.

Hopkins may not look the part -- Toby Jones looks much more like Hitchcock in that trashy HBO hit piece "The Girl" -- but his voice, mannerisms, and manner of speaking are fantastic. It won't take long to suspend your disbelief.

Very much looking forward to this. Alfred Hitchcock has played a big part of my life the last few years, so the timing on this film is ideal.

Should have been in black & white.

Looks amazing. Hopkins and Mirren should be a match made in heaven.

What's the deal with Toby Jones getting cast as dead famous people at the same time a more recognizable actor is releasing something with the same role? Happened with Truman Capote.

I wonder if it is an attempt to cash in on the marketing of the larger budget pic, ie transmorphers?

Many years ago I was a mass communications major. The professor in my film study class told us that after Hitchcock finished the shower scene he sent it out to be reviewed by the censors. It came back rejected, as it was far too violent for an American audience. The courier who brought it back to Hitchcock asked him if he wanted it taken to editing. Hitchcock said no, just leave it on his desk. It sat there for a week. At the end of the week he sent it back to the censors with a letter saying that the scene had been re-edited and now you will not actually see the knife puncture the victims skin. It passed. That scene had 80 cuts in one minute. No one had ever done that in film before. The original film still holds up today. The man was brilliant.

Yep, by all accounts a true story except that the censors didn't send it back for violence, they sent it back for nudity; they thought they saw Janet Leigh's nipple.

Interestingly, his next murder film, the overlooked "Frenzy," wouldn't merely have an implied nipple, it would have a brutal, highly explicit rape scene that is still disturbing to this day.

I much prefer "The Day the Earth Stopped". And who could ever forget  "War of the Planets"?

Hitchcock was a sleazeball. He demanded sexual favors from his actresses. Fat, dirty, old man. Tippi Hedren refused and he ruined her career.

tony41454: Hitchcock was a sleazeball. He demanded sexual favors from his actresses


It seems unlikely he did, or at the very least there is a shadow of doubt on the claim that should make people think twice before accepting it on faith. The only actress to make that claim is Tippi Hedren. Not only do others such as Kim Novak refute that claim, it was no secret that Hitchcock was impotent. His close friends and colleagues knew it and have discussed it in several memoirs. Even he openly discussed it in interviews with Francois Truffaut. He couldn't perform sexually.

There is no question that Hitchcock was an obsessive and controlling man who manipulated Hedren and played games with her career. That he demanded sexual favors from his actresses, though, is a claim Tippi has managed to get many to latch onto but which no other actresses will back. Not Novak. Not Ingrid Bergman. Not Joan Fontaine. And on and on.

So while I'll wonder if it's actually true, I'm not going to just blindly buy into it.
