A fun trip back in time for Baby Boomers
In spite of the subject matter of this film - a movie based on a grisly mass murderer, directed by a corpulent Peeping Tom, it was really quite charming. All the characters were well developed and the film seems to accomplish what it sets out to do. The difficulty Hitchcock had getting the film made, the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife and her mostly unrecognized contributions, and The Way Things Were back in 1960. I loved the nightmares, the conversations with Ed Gein, and my favorite part, when Hitchcock's wife tells him off. Perhaps not as interesting for younger folks than for those of us who remember Hitchcock.
