A Hitchcock ‘Psycho’ Drama
By: Jacob Bernstein / Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Helen Mirren, center, arriving at the “Hitchcock” premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan on Sunday. In the movie, she plays Alfred Hitchcock’s wife, Alma Reville

EVEN in death, Alfred Hitchcock has accomplished something that few Hollywood icons can claim: to have not one, but two somewhat unflattering biographical films made about him in the same year. The first, an HBO movie, was “The Girl.” It painted Hitchcock as a sexual predator who all but destroyed Tippi Hedren’s career when she didn’t sleep with him during the making of “The Birds.” The second film, which had its premiere Sunday night at the Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan, is “Hitchcock,” starring Anthony Hopkins in the title role and Helen Mirren as his frequently put-upon wife, Alma Reville. By 7 p.m., starlets alighted the red carpet, including Scarlett Johansson, who plays Janet Leigh during the making of “Psycho,” and Jessica Biel, who portrays Vera Miles, an actress who fell out with Hitchcock after marrying and having children. Upstairs, Ms. Mirren and her husband, Taylor Hackford, posed for photos and got popcorn. Toni Collette, who plays Hitchcock’s assistant, Peggy Robertson, was telling a friend how excited she was to see the movie for the first time. Justin Timberlake was holding a seat for his wife, Ms. Biel. As the audience was being seated, Sacha Gervasi, the film’s director, made his way to the front of the theater to introduce the cast, apologize for Mr. Hopkins’s absence

(“Shooting,” he said), and thank Fox Searchlight, the film’s distributor, for its support of the movie. Then, the film began. For the next 1 hour 40 minutes, attendees like Anna Wintour, Bob Balaban, Carole Radziwill and Jon Voight watched as Hitchcock stumbled through the making of “Psycho” until his wife swooped in to save the day — and the film. “I love Hitchcock and ‘Psycho,’ so it was nice to see the real story,” Jean Doumanian, a film producer, said afterward, as guests made their way into the after-party at the “21” Club. Waiters handed out mini-burgers and Champagne by the truckload, as Ms. Mirren held court with her husband. “I think it was probably quite easy to misunderstand Hitchcock and his particular kind of humor,” she said, adding that she was not entirely surprised there was another film depicting his obsessive relationships with his leading ladies. And, she said, when “The Birds” was made, he was “drinking much more” and “getting frustrated.” Mr. Gervasi, who stood nearby, said he hoped that audiences would come away with a sense of fun. “Our movie has comedic elements,” he said. “That darkness, the obsessions with the women are all there. But we wanted to add a sense of tenderness and humanity.” In a room toward the back, Ms. Biel, who wore a sparkly pantsuit from Oscar de la Renta, was joking with James D’Arcy, who has a small part playing Anthony Perkins, the star of “Psycho.” “You’re really good in the movie,” Mr. D’Arcy said. “I was terrible. Just terrible.” “I loved you,” Ms. Biel replied. “I loved you as Norman Bates.”

Can Vulture Spot All the Hitchcock References inHitchcock?
When we ran into director Sacha Gervasi at the Hitchcock premiere and after-party on Sunday, he had a challenge for us: spot the clever little homages to Alfred Hitchcock embedded in Gervasi's new film. Not just the obvious references. Anyone familiar with the late director's fifties TV show will recognize the bulbous silhouette created when the movie Hitch (a paunched-up Anthony Hopkins) passes behind a translucent screen. And the re-creations of iconic scenes from the 1960 Psycho are an integral part of the film, which is about the making of that picture. No, Gervasi had more subtle things in mind — eight of them, to be exact. And he said if Vulture could identify them and the Hitchcock moves to which they alluded, there'd be a prize: "Some kind of special screening, with an actor that you like in the film." He might have been kidding, of course, but ... well, ScarJo, this is for you. 1. Psycho Duh. During one scene in Hitchcock, the director briefly peers through a peephole into the dressing room of Vera Miles (Jessica Biel), much the way Anthony Perkins, as the demented Norman Bates, once ogled Janet Leigh through a motel-room wall. Then there's the overhead shot inside Hitch's house that shows us the front door and staircase in exactly the way that Hitchcock himself framed the arrival of doomed investigator Arbogast in the spooky Bates mansion. "That's two of the three," Gervasi confirmed, meaning there's one more. "The third one is more obscure. You have to watch Psycho, and you'll see the shot." Got it.

2. Vertigo At the time, this unexpected 1958 flop was weighing heavily on Hitchcock's mind. In Gervasi's film, we hear him wondering: "What if [Psycho] is anotherVertigo?" In a scene that references that picture, Hitch awakens one night in a panic after having a dream in which a fantasy corpse turns out not to be dead. Also in the Vertigo style, the world swirls in around Hitch after he calls his wife, Alma (Helen Mirren), and suspects she's been talking to a lover. 3. Dial M for Murder That phone-call scene was inspired by one in the 1954 Dial M for Murder, in which a wife gets a call from her husband and then is strangled from behind by a man the husband has hired to kill her. Here, though, it's the husband, Hitchcock, whose head we see from behind as his wife says, "What did you forget this time, Whit?" 4. Notorious Hitch is getting paranoid about all the time Alma is spending with Whit, a writer with whom she's collaborating on a screenplay. His jealousy is inflamed when he finds sand (from the environs of Whit's beach house) on the bathroom floor, and slyly fills a pill bottle with it. This is a reference to wine bottles filled with sand in Hitchcock's 1946 hit. 5. Foreign Correspondent An early scene in Hitchcock takes place at the 1959 premiere of North by Northwest. Underneath the movie marquee, in another overhead shot, we're shown a sea of umbrellas dripping in the rain, clearly a salute to the director's 1940 film. Note: At this point, we asked Gervasi how we were doing. "The most anyone's gotten so far is four or five," he told us. Well, not to brag, but we were just getting started ... 6. Saboteur Gervasi gave us this one for free, although with no details. Could it be another foreground-background deal? "You have to tell me where, to get it right," he said. 7. Frenzy In Hitchcock, the director, who's supposed to be on a diet, munches celery in the kitchen while Alma washes vegetables in the sink. His jealousy has now reached a peak, and as we push into a close-up of

the back of Alma's neck, her husband's ominous mastication begins to sound like crunching bones. This is strongly reminiscent of the dinner scene in Hitchcock's penultimate movie, 1972'sFrenzy, in which a woman munches breadsticks while she and her husbanddiscuss broken bones. Right? "You're half right," Gervasi said. "You got one of the two. It's two films." 8. To Catch a Thief We think. When Alma finds a stack of head shots of the various blondes with whom she knew her husband was obsessed, she arranges the photos in a neat stack and then places one of her earrings atop it — to signal that she's found his photographic stash. The face at the top of the stack is that of Grace Kelly. This is admittedly a tricky, or possibly desperate connection. The linking of Kelly and jewelry suggests a reference to Hitchcock's great 1955 film. Unless it doesn't ... "You're at seven and a half," Gervasi announced. "There's eight. I want someone to tell me all eight. Go back and rewatch the movie, and come back to me with a full list." Any better ideas out there? Anything for a date with ScarJo.

Anthony Hopkins: Dial M for makeup

Anthony Hopkins hated being buried under makeup, prosthetics and a heavy fat suit to play Alfred Hitchcock in “Hitchcock,” and couldn’t wait to peel it all off. “At the end of every day, Anthony would tear off his makeup and say, like, ‘Good evening,’ or ‘Hello Clarice,’ ” a reference to his movie “The Silence of the Lambs,” his co-star Michael Stuhlburg told us at Ziegfeld Theatre on Sunday. “He had been . . . burning up probably all day long. He had been there for hours before any of us.” Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel and others attended the premiere, followed by a party at ‘21,’ where songs from Hitchcock’s most famous movies were played

Hitch and his niche
Film's stars talk their favorite Hitchcock flicks

"Hitchcock" preemed Sunday at the Ziegfeld, and surprisingly, even though the Fox Searchlight pic is all about the making of "Psycho," some of the new pic's stars preferred other Alfred Hitchcock classics. " 'Vertigo' is my favorite Hitchcock movie," said Helen Mirren, "but even his lesssuccessful films are very interesting." "My favorite Hitchcock movie is 'Strangers on a Train,' " said Scarlett Johansson, "because it makes you feel slightly disoriented." Jessica Biel was more noncomittal. "Every film Alfred Hitchcock made was a stepping stone to something," she said. Then again, "Psycho" has its fans. "It was ahead of its time in putting gore in your face and setting the stage for the genre that exists today," said Ralph Macchio, who chatted with co-star James D'Arcy at the 21 Club afterparty.

'Hitchcock' Bows in New York
For a biopic about arguably cinema’s greatest master of suspense, there was not much mystery at the premiere of “Hitchcock” on Sunday night at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York — save for maybe the puzzling presence of Jon Voight. The trenchcoat-clad actor, who had no apparent affiliation with the film, joined a bevy of the film’s stars on the red carpet. Apprehension-inducing maybe, but not exactly the stuff of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” As Anthony Hopkins, who portrays the legendary director, was absent, Helen Mirren, who plays the director’s wife, Alma Reville, took center stage. “The inspiration, the real person, was [a strong woman], so I wasn’t playing a concept,” the Dolce & Gabbana-clad actress said. “I was hopefully playing a concept of the real woman.” Mirren was joined on the carpet by cast mates Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, James D’Arcy, Danny Huston and Ralph Macchio. Johansson, bringing up the rear of the night’s arrivals at the Peggy Siegal Co.-hosted event, flirted her way down the press line in a sleek Rodarte cocktail dress, carefully maneuvering questions about her role in the upcoming “Captain America” sequel. “You think I can tell you that?” the actress asked back. Johansson was, however, game to answer the evening’s most prevalent question: What is your favorite Hitchcock film? “‘Strangers on a Train,’” she offered before hustling into the theater. “I think as a child I

responded to the carousel scene.” An Oscar de la Renta-clad Biel stuck to the popular vote, the night’s film within a film, “Pyscho.” Although the newlywed was tight-lipped on plans for her first Thanksgiving as a wife, she appeared ecstatic to see new husband Justin Timberlake once inside the theater. The fedora-wearing singer, already seated towards the middle of the audience, returned the sentiment, planting a kiss on his new bride’s forehead as the lights dimmed. Timberlake was M.I.A. at the film’s after party, held at the nearby 21 Club, where Biel schmoozed with industry folks over a glass of Champagne.

Red Carpet Confidential: Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johansson Glam UP ‘Hitchcock’ Premiere
By: Valerie Nome / Monday, November 19, 2012

Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson are locked in gleeful conversation when they greet each other Sunday during the Hitchcock premiere held at NYC’s Ziegfeld Theatre. There’s no doubt they’re tight — not only do they arrive five minutes apart, but they’re also wearing the same shade of lipstick! One style surprise is Jessica’s choice of a sparkly, sheer Oscar De La Renta pantsuit. Hm, is it heavy? “It’s not, actually,” she says. “It’s quite light.” Although new husband Justin Timberlake is nowhere to be seen during her first red carpet event after their Oct. 19 wedding in Italy, the two have been making couples time by giving back in the Rockaways, the Queens neighborhood that was hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy. What was it like helping out? “It was incredibly amazing,” she says.

For Jessica, the love story between the legendary filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock, and his unsung partner wife Alma, gave her cause for pause. “[His wife Alma] really was the woman behind the man,” she says. “She accepted that role, and in that role, had her own identity, her own life, had her own achievements and things that she worked on. Still, they shared their success.” She adds, “Women are capable of doing everything. They can have their own career, stand behind a partner, support them both — I get so inspired by that.” Although she brushes off a question about spending her first Thanksgiving with her new husband, director Sacha Gervasi gives her high marks in friendliness and professionalism. “She’s extraordinary,” he tells me. “She’s light, she’s fun, but serious. She’s a serious, dedicated actress.” Hm, did Justin visit the set? “He did come down,” Sacha says. “He was great. He’s very supportive. He’s also an artist, so he’s super low-key, super cool. We hung out. He wasn’t in the movie, so he respected his wife’s space as she worked.” Up next is Scarlett, who is ravishing in a printed Rodarte frock. In her role as Janet Leigh (Jamie Lee Curtis’ mom), she takes on the infamous Psycho shower scene. “I think the scariest thing about shooting a [nude] scene like that is the unnerving fact that you go in, and nobody likes to see an actor have a modesty issue,” she says. “Once you get the fourth take out of the way, it’s OK.” According to director Sacha, she certainly studied up. “She was Janet Leigh,” he says. “She’s so serious about it. When she took on the part, she called up Jamie Lee, Janet’s daughter, and researched. She got books and photos from Jamie Lee. She read every book that Janet did, she read the book on Psycho. She said ‘oh, she was smoking these kind of cigarettes on the set.’ She owned it. “ He continues, “Don’t be fooled by the glamour. Scarlett’s been around. She brings weight in the sense of gravitas acting chops, and total dedication.” Scarlett’s favorite Hitchcock flick? “Strangers On A Train,” she says. “I loved the suspense of it.”

Meanwhile, Jessica names her favorites as Psycho and The Birds. “What Psycho did to cinema in America at that time blew its brain,” Jessica says. “At the time, everyone assumed this was going to be a massive disaster, and sort of a C-level movie. Now it’s studied. To me, it’s epic to be part of something like this.” The ladies head inside to join castmates Helen Mirren, Ralph Macchio and Toni Collette, plus Angelina Jolie’s dad, Jon Voight, who steps out to enjoy the flick. Hitchcock hits theaters Nov. 23.

The roof isn’t the only thing that’s hot on Broadway tonight. Scarlett Johansson will be on the Great White Way in a barely there peach-colored slip that will have tongues wagging, thanks to “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’s” costume-designer, Julie Weiss. She also created clothes for the film “Hitchcock,” in which ScarJo played screen siren Janet Leigh. “When Scarlett came for her fitting for the play, she was already Maggie the Cat,” Weiss told News theater critic Joe Dziemianowicz. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” starts Tuesday at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

Just One Hitch! ‘Hitchcock’ Star Name Their Favorite Scene and Movie Be the Master of Suspense
By: Nell Alk / Tuesday, November 20,2012

Quick, name your favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie and scene. With the Master of Suspense getting a lot of attention this fall, thanks to the HBO movie, The Girl, and the theatrical feature Hitchcock, which opens in limited release on Friday, Movieline decided these would be good questions to ask of the celebrity contingent that showed up for the New York premiere of the latter film on Sunday. Hitchcock, which stars Anthony Hopkins in the title role and Helen Mirren as his better half Alma Reville, is set during the making of Psycho and depicts the filmmaker in a more cuddly light than the manipulative misogynist he's made out to be in The Girl. The comic drama is built around Hitchcock's relationship with his wife and the helpful role she played in his career. And though Hopkins didn't attend the premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater, I spoke to him via satellite on Saturday. Based on his answers, he's clearly spent some time with Vertigo. What is your favorite Hitchcock film and your favorite scene? Anthony Hopkins, the star of Hitchcock Movie: "Vertigo is one of my all-time favorites. I think it’s the haunting music of Bernard Hermann and James Stewart’s romantic obsession for this young woman who is a mystery. She's beautiful, blonde, inaccessible. He falls madly in love with her, and she’s killed halfway through or a quarter way through the film. She just falls out of the window or commits suicide. Then she reappears on the street in San Francisco."

Scene: "That scene particularly, when he follows her across the street to her hotel. That late afternoon light in the San Francisco street, 54 years ago when it was made. And the moment when he leaves her room, he says, “Can I take you for dinner,” and Kim Novak, as he goes out, turns towards the camera and you see the whole plot. You’re let in on the secret that this was a setup and James Stewart is the victim of an appalling tragedy—a woman’s murder. Then, he sees her on the street and becomes obsessed with repossessing Madeleine. He makes her have her hair done and the skirts and the shoes and everything. He’s obsessed, as Hitchcock was about the costuming, about the dressing of his female stars. He’s waiting in her hotel room and she’s finally persuaded to have her hair done the way Madeleine had it. She comes out and she’s come back from the dead. I mean, that’s the kind of mystical genius of Hitchcock. I think that has now become the top, number one film of all time. The critics destroyed it when it came out. They just said it was rubbish. Now, it’s number one. Top movie, above Casablanca and all those. So, the guy’s genius lives on, many years after his death." Sacha Gervasi, the director of Hitchcock Movie: "Hel-lo, Psycho. With many filmmakers there’s perhaps two or three masterworks, but with Hitchcock there’s ten or twelve. That’s very rare. I also love Vertigo, because it’s so romantic. I think it’s sort of unintentionally revealing of the man himself." Scene: "How could I not say the shower scene? It’s so revolutionary and so shocking and surprising." Scarlett Johansson, Janet Leigh in Hitchcock Movie: "Strangers on a Train. As a kid, I liked the look of it. I liked the cinematography. I liked the suspense. I liked everything about it." Danny Huston, Strangers on a Train screenwriter Whitfield Cook in Hitchcock Movie: "Strangers on a Train — only because I wrote it. [Laughs] I suppose Psycho because of those memorable moments; because it all came together in such a terrifying way and it’s just such a deeply psychological film." Scene: "I don’t know whether it’s my favorite, but the one I just can’t shake, especially when I get soap in my eyes in the shower is the Psycho shower sequence. It’s just something that stays with me. And, if you’re somewhere around birds and the birds get a little too close to you, then you have that memory, too. It’s a subconscious thing." Toni Collette, Peggy Robertson in Hitchcock

Movie: "It’s too hard. I mean, do you know how many movies he made? Jesus. I always go for Rear Window. Psycho is probably the most famous, which is why [Hitchcock] is so enlightening. He’s the master." Scene: "I’m too jetlagged to recall." Michael Stuhlbarg, Lew Wasserman in Hitchcock Movie: "It’s impossible to choose between them. Each one accomplishes a different feat. I am particularly taken by Rope, especially because of the technical achievement of shooting the story so that it appeared to be a single continuous shot and how he creatively found ways to hide that." Scene: "When that biplane comes after Cary Grant in North By Northwest and how close it gets to him — that's an iconic scene that has stayed with me." Jessica Biel, Vera Miles in Hitchcock Movie: "I actually just saw Dial M for Murder, which I quite loved a lot. That and The Birds, of course." James D’Arcy, Anthony Perkins in Hitchcock Movie: "I think the best one is the last one I watched, because the minute you see it you’re struck by his genius and you forget the other ones. Then, you watch the next one. The last one I saw was Foreign Correspondent, which is a 1940 piece of war propaganda. It’s utterly mesmeric. It’s got one of the best plane crashes I’ve ever seen. That wasn’t even on my radar before I’d seen it. Now it’s my favorite Hitchcock film." Scene: "Wow. That is a difficult question. That shower scene in Psycho. That had people running out of cinemas when it was first screened. It’s just so iconic." Jon Voight, actor Movie: "I don’t have any favorites. I liked what he did for cinema, you know? And everybody who makes a film has learned something from Hitchcock and the way he made films. So, every film I see reminds me. ‘They took that from Hitchcock, they took that from Hitchcock.’ The things he employed became ingested by everybody in filmmaking." Amanda Setton, actress, The Mindy Project Movie: "I don’t want to be cliché, but I have to say Psycho. We shoot on the Universal lot in L.A. and the Bates Motel and the Psycho house are on our back lot, so I kind of feel a very personal relationship to the ‘epicness,’ if you will, of that space."

Ralph Macchio, actor Movie: "Right now, it’s Rear Window. I just wrote a short film that I’m going to direct this December and there’s a voyeur-esque element to it." Scene: "Certainly the shower scene in Psycho. There’s a zillion of ’em." Steve "Lips" Kudlow, frontman, Anvil Movie: "It would probably be Dial M for Murder. It was really brilliant that there was virtually nothing but one room. That and Rear Window. Those two movies. Wow."

Battle of the Hitchcock Beauties: Jessica Biel Vs Scarlett Johansson
By: Hannah Weil / Sunday, November 18, 2012

We hate to tear you away from all the American Music Awards glamour, but with looks this good from Hitchcock's NYC premiere, we had to bring you a first look at Jessica Biel's and Scarlett Johansson's jaw-dropping arrivals. The film's leading ladies debuted two standout ensembles for the occasion with two very different angles. Jessica Biel brought on the glitz in a silver sequined tunic-and-trouser set, complete with megawatt Lorraine Schwartz earrings. Meanwhile, Scarlett worked a Rodarte minidress with a gorgeous, leafy print and then turned up the drama with a deep-burgundy lip and a pair of cutout booties. Neither actress channeled the early-'60s-era fashion of the film, instead opting for modern, high-wattage premiere styles, each with its own version of the wow factor.

Scarlett Johansson ‘Hitchcock’ NYC Premiere – Stuns in Strapless Mini
ByMonday: Katrina Mitzeliotis / November 19, 2012

The star looked premiere perfect in a printed Rodarte dress. It has been a while since we’ve seen Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet, but she looked so pretty for the NYC premiere of Hitchcock on Nov. 18, where she opted for a Rodarte Spring 2013 strapless black and green ivy-trellis printed frock. ScarJo paired the pretty frock with black Gucci peep-toe booties and a dramatic, dark red lip. Retro, side-swept waves completed the ensemble. While the star often opts for sexy yet classic styles, I really loved this dress on her.

Scarlett Johansson keeps it short and sexy at the Hitchcock premiere
By Jo Sayer / Monday, November 19, 2012

SCARLETT Johansson and Jessica Biel showcased two very different looks at the premiere of their movie Hitchcock last night. Scarlett, who plays Psycho actress Janet Leigh in the biopic, kept it short in a black tiered minidress with green leaf print. The 27-year-old actress teamed the unusual Rodarte frock with shiny black toeless boots that were stopped from being too clunky by two sexy straps at the back. She wore a slash of blood-red lipstick and swept her blonde tousled hair to the side for a dramatic look. But Justin Timberlake’s missus Jessica, who plays Scarlett’s on-screen sister Vera Miles, failed to impress in a silver beaded trouser suit. The shapeless tunic was a brave look for the 30-year-old actress, who tied the knot in a lavish Italian wedding a month ago. Sticking to the silver theme, she continued to dazzle from the neck up with diamond drop earrings set off with simple makeup.

Meanwhile Helen Mirren, 67, who takes on the role of Hitchcock’s wife Alma threatened to steal the limelight from the two younger actresses. She wowed crowds at the New York screening in a striking black lace gown with gold detailing. Australian actress Toni Collette, who played Hitchcock’s assistant Peggy, looked chic in a black knee-length dress as she stood next to the other leading ladies. The film will tell the story of Hitchcock’s life and marriage, and the making of Psycho, with Anthony Hopkins in the lead role.
