40/40 Day 8 Report

We started off the evening with the classic Hitchcock trailer to Psycho, since it merely teases and doesn't give too much away, and ended with a brief glimpse of the ending to the unnecessary shot-for-shot remake of a few years back.

I enjoy the opportunity to watch a film like Psycho with folks who have never seen it before, or who only have recollections of the shower scene. It still holds up 50 years after it's release, and is among Hitchcock's finest. And while there's a lot about the film that I've always loved, I think with each viewing I become more and more fond of Vera Miles' performance.

On Deck: Get ready for a double-dose of Elmore Leonard, featuring Out of Sight and Quentin Tarantino's best film, Jackie Brown.
