Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' changed cinema forever in unimaginable ways, but its most controversial scene - at time of release - may surprise you.
It appears that the golden age of cinema prior to colour is in danger of being forgotten by consequent generations.
As well as pretending to be 007 in an episode of ‘The Saint’, Moore actually starred as the spy in a March 1964 episode of BBC show ‘Mainly Millicent’. In the sketch, he goes for lunch with a Russian agent played by the show’s star Millicent Martin and punches a waiter. Luckily for him, Cubby Broccoli still thought he was the perfect man for the big-screen job.
Jamie Lee Curtis took to her Instagram page yesterday to post a real gem of a shot – her recreating the iconic shower scene from ‘Psycho’. As film buffs will know, it was Jamie Lee’s mum Janet Leigh who was the star Hitchcock famously killed off so very early on in the film. In the caption, Lee Curtis says that a 'shot-by-shot’ remake of the scene has been filmed for 'Scream Queens’, the forthcoming horror-comedy anthology show from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, of 'American Horror Story’ fame.
Photos taken from behind-the-scenes of film sets weren’t so readily available before the days of Instagram and Twitter. Now, not only are we inundated with them, but we practically expect them… even while a film is still shooting. But while pics taken during the productions of films like “Star Wars,” “Jaws” and “Psycho” may not have gone “viral” (because there was no such thing back then), the internet has, in recent years, unearthed a whole cache of splendid snaps captured behind the scenes. Here are 20 of the very coolest we’ve seen.
