The untold story behind the film that shocked the world
We both have our hands in our pockets for a reason ...
Alfred Hitchcock, despite his reputation, had great difficulty filming his most famous film, Psycho. Facing opposition from the studio, he mortgaged his house to raise the money to make the film. The stress inevitably spilled over into his marriage, and having a pretty young starlet under his wing didn't help matters there either. In the end, the result was worth it, and his marriage also survived.
