Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho

Jan 14, 2013

When Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" came out in 1960, author Stephen Rebello says that American culture was on the verge of a seachange. Hitchcock knew the public wanted something different and he was ready to push the limits to deliver. Rebello captures the era and the genius of Hitchcock's filmmaking in his book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho." It's the basis for the movie "Hitchcock" out now in theaters. Tuesday, Rebello joins Doug to talk about the man that changed the way we watch movies.

Stephen Rebello is a Playboy contributing editor. His book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho is the basis for the film Hitchcock, which runs through Thursday at the Broadway Centre Cinemas in Salt Lake City.
