Shortly before the release of his narrative feature debut, I recorded a fun little chat with filmmaker Sascha Gervasi who made the remarkable leap from making the Anvil doc to directing Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren in Hitchcock, the biopic about the making of Psycho.
If you’re a regular listener to this show, you’ve probably heard Lance and I rave about this flick. But on this episode, we also get into Sascha’s amazing story about his life-changing encounter with the late, diminutive French actor Herve Villechaize (of Fantasy Island and The Man With The Golden Gun fame). It’s an incredible tale you have to hear to believe!
And if you’re interested in checking out my interview with the Anvil fellas, you can download it here:
p.s. And don’t forget to vote for The Rue Morgue Podcast in the 11th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards.
It’s the final round of our Guillermo del Toro HITCHCOCK giveaways.
For those just tuning in, Guillermo del Toro has been doing a series of Alfred Hitchcock films at the TIFF LIGHTBOX, offering a one-hour introduction and a one-hour post-screening discussion for each presentation. So far, he’s shown NOTORIOUS and FRENZY and his introductions and post-screening discussions have been absolutely amazing.
The bad news is, the screenings have all sold out.
But the good news is, Rue Morgue (in conjunction with the Rue Morgue Podcast & The Mortuary) has tickets to giveaway!
Finally, we have four pairs for the last film in the series, 1959′s epic spy adventure NORTH BY NORTHWEST, starring Cary Grant and Eva Saint Marie.
It’s screening on Wednesday, May 16th @ 7 p.m.
It’s round three of our Guillermo del Toro HITCHCOCK giveaways.
For those just tuning in, beginning on May 7th at the TIFF LIGHTBOX, Guillermo del Toro will present four Alfred Hitchcock classics over four nights, offering a one-hour introduction and a one-hour post-screening discussion for each film.
So the good news is, Rue Morgue (in conjunction with the Rue Morgue Podcast & The Mortuary) has tickets to giveaway to each of the screenings.
Next up, we have four pairs for the third film in the series, one of Hitchcock’s personal favourites, 1943′s SHADOW OF A DOUBT, starring Joseph Cotten and Teresa Wright.
It’s screening on Tuesday, May 15th @ 7 p.m.
I wish I could attend the Dreams, Nightmares and Hallucinations: A Celebration of The Dream Sequence lecture by Ronni Thomas next month in Brooklyn. I love the subject matter, particularly the inclusion of Canadian cult 3-D classic The Mask.
