Alfred Hitchcock Day
According to Stephen Rebello, author of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, “Hitchcock made his most career-redefining film Psycho in part out of frustration when the suave, more traditionally Hitchcockian suspense thriller he was scheduled to make starring Audrey Hepburn and Laurence Harvey fell apart after months of expensive script preparation, casting, location scouting and costume and set design.”
