Incidentally, for any Wombats out there who love Hitchcock, Turner Classic Movies & Ball State University are offering a free MOOC on Hitchcock, complete with board discussions and assignments and a viewing schedule tied in with TCM's programming of its Hitchcock days during July. The class opened up on Monday, but you can jump in most anytime; you don't have to have TCM, but can view some of the movies online, if not all.

Really fun to do - I did the "Summer of Noir" MOOC two years ago and loved it! Details at tcm.com .

Subject: [PW] Inside PSYCHO

Interesting-enough, well-mounted documentary/lecture on the development of PSYCHO, from Ed Gein through Robert Bloch's creation of the whole magilla and mostly about the film and its aftermath. Some of it is perhaps questionable (I somehow doubt Bloch looked at his reflection in mirrors for years afterward with the consistent thought of how he anticipated Gein's activities before they were detailed for public consumption), but one nice datum I hadn't stumbled across before is the differential in the amount of money laid down for the options for PSYCHO and THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, at about the same time (though it took four years, rather than one for PSYCHO, for the film THE HAUNTING to be released)...Jackson's agent rather more on the ball, clearly.
