Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho had its premiere in New York City on Thursday, June 16th, 1960, or exactly 50 years ago. Articles discussing the anniversary can be found at The New York Post, Cinematical, Moviefone and Entertainment Weekly. Here‘s an interesting article from The Wall Street Journal about Bernard Herrmann’s musical score for the film. A special 50th Anniversary Edition of the film will be released on Blu-ray in October.
I mention this anniversary only because of my article CBS and Psycho, which discusses the planned broadcast of Psycho on CBS in September of 1966 and the reasons why the network never aired the film.
