Psycho scared me stiff! It took me a very long time to feel happy about drawing the shower curtain - or even having a shower. Felt a lot safer in the bath!


I saw it in the theater when it was re released. Too young to see it when it first hit the silver screen. I was OK that night, but totally fear-stricken the day after. Hitchcock was the master of scaring folks silly. On some level, I think we all like a good scare, especially on the screen and not in our life.


Hitchcock also made Rear Window with Jimmy Stewart, the scary villian in that flick was Raymond Burr, who later starred in the Perry Mason series. Raymond Burr had the most beautiful eyes apparent in extreme close ups. Wow

@glitterbag,
Raymond Burr was an uber-villain in Rear Window. Good choice

If nobody's mentioned....Robert Mitchum in Cape Fear. A special kind of sinister.

@panzade,
Robert Mitchum creeps me out even when he played heroes. He always seemed like he could bust out a switch blade and kill an old woman or small weeping child in an alley. He seems more like a lunatic capable of terrible things.

@vonny,
Splender in the Grass was on last night. Warren Beatty was so young. Pat Hingle played Beatty's dad, and he was a well-intentioned sinister villian. He managed to ruin everything in his misguided way of building his view of utopia (for his family). It seems very dated, made in 1961, sometimes amusing sometimes obtuse, but at least a trip down memory lane. As it happens, I was far to young to see this picture when it was released, probably fortuitous because a young child would have been bored stiff.
