Why do we still love classic films?
As we approach the centenary of the birth of the first film film, the UK has one film which is timeless and iconic, but also holds a special place in our hearts.
It is the classic film of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.
The film is one of cinema’s greatest hits and has been nominated for seven Oscars, including two for best picture.
And while many have dismissed the film as a flop and a joke, the film itself has been hailed as a landmark piece of cinematic history.
So what is it about this classic film that makes it so special?
It’s all about a love triangle, but that’s not the only story there is to the film.
There are three different versions of the story.
The first version of the film was released in 1954 and tells the story of a woman named Alice (Kirsten Dunst) and her love interest, a man named Joe (Tom Hanks).
In the first version, the two are trying to break up, but Alice and Joe fall in love.
Alice’s father, the actor Edward Norton (Robert Mitchum), tells her that he is sick of her having affairs, and that she should marry him, but he does not want to see her.
When Alice tells her father that she is going to marry Joe, his reaction is to call her the Devil and threaten to have her killed.
The next version, released in 1956, tells Alice and her father the true story.
Joe and Alice go to a diner, where Joe is working on a car and Alice is playing with dolls, to tell him that they are going to break off their relationship.
Joe then takes Alice and the doll to a cemetery where Alice and a young boy, Jack (John Lithgow), are buried.
After Joe and the boy have gone, Alice goes to her father and tells him that she and Jack are married and are not going to have any more children.
She also tells him she loves him and tells his wife, Mary (Liz Garbus), that she loves her too.
As they are walking to the cemetery, Mary is horrified to see that the grave is full of people and children.
Alice comes home and finds that Jack is alive and well and that her father is not dead.
The third version of Psycho was released two years later in 1958.
This version tells the true history of the character of the woman who was murdered by Jack and Alice in their diner.
She is a mother to Jack, but is also a lover to Jack.
The story is told from a different perspective, but it is still based on the events of the 1954 version.
Alice and Jack, now married, have a son, who has an abusive relationship with his mother.
This son, Charles (Robert Redford), takes on the name, Jack Redford (Dylan Baker), and moves into the family home in Hollywood.
He uses Alice as a “pimp” and seduces her, then murders her.
Alice tells Jack to take her back to the diner.
After she gets there, he goes over to her, kills her, and then runs off to get help from Jack.
Jack then takes a gun and shoots Alice in the back, killing her.
The original version of this version, published in 1954, was based on a different woman, who was a prostitute who worked as a dancer in a club.
The women version was based in a story told by a prostitute called Lucy (Lorraine Bracco), who is an escort in a Hollywood nightclub.
Lucy tells the girls that her boss, a rich playboy, has a huge collection of sex toys and she will pay them for them if they will be his sex slaves.
Lucy also tells the women that Jack and the other men in the club will shoot her if she ever tells them about her mistress, but she will not.
When Lucy tells her mistress that she will be paid to have sex with him, she tells her to go to her boss’s house.
When she arrives there, the playboy orders her to give him a blowjob, but the woman refuses.
He then orders her and the men to get naked and walk to the other end of the club.
They get there and Lucy and the rest of the men are taken to a bedroom and told to have a threesome.
Lucy then gets into the room, but Jack comes in, and he rapes her.
Lucy manages to escape, but before she can do so, Jack shoots her in the head and shoots Lucy in the chest.
When the women returns to the hotel room, Jack is still there and kills Lucy and her men.
The version of Jack in the 1954 film was never finished and has never been seen in a feature film, but many believe that it is the most realistic version of a character to ever be portrayed.
The new version of Henry Fonda’s Psycho was first released in the UK in 2011 and is the story which is most closely tied to the 1954 classic
