The Secrecy of <i>Psycho</i>

The 1960 film Psycho is a classic, but nearly 60 years later, we’ve become so familiar with the movie that we’ve forgotten how surprised the original audience was with the twist: the identity of the murderer. The modern audience already knows, so we tend more to deconstruct the building of suspense, the artful shower scene, and trivia like the toilet flushing. Back in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock went to great lengths to hide not only the twist, but many other details from the theater audience. Hitch came up with some pretty imaginative tactics, as Simon Whistler explains.
