Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho
Stephen Rebello

'Essential reading for fans, critics and students alike.' Time Out

'This time you're going too far,' warned one of Hitchcock's associates about Psycho. Charted here for the first time is the story of one of the true landmarks in the history of horror movies, from its grisly conception to its dramatic aftermath. Rebello takes us behind the scenes, drawing on Hitchcock's private files, in-depth interviews with the stars, writers and technical crew, to give a unique and unparalleled view of the master at work.

'Meticulously researched and irresistible ... required reading not only for Psycho-philes, but for anyone interested in the backstage world of movie-creation.' Anthony Perkins

'Rebello's book combines a gossipy retrospective with a serious work of criticism, presenting an articulate guide to Hitchcock's idiosyncratic approach to film-making and the collaborative efforts that underpinned it. The author has conducted interviews with all those involved in the making of Psycho - its casting, scripting, art design, lighting, editing, selling - in the course of which we inch closer to the bizarre, unpredictable quality of its director.' Anthony Quinn

Stephen Rebello reports on the American entertainment scene for GQ, LA Style and Movieline and is the co-author, with Edward Marguiles, of Bad Movies We Love, which is also available from Marion Boyars.
