'Psycho' Screenwriter Dead at 84

31 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The man who penned the screenplay for cult thriller Psycho has died at 84. Joseph Stefano, who was a close friend of Psycho director Alfred Hitchcock, was also the co-creator of science-fiction TV series The Outer Limits. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native was also a talented pianist and lyricist, who began his career touring in a modern jazz band. His big break as a screenwriter came in the mid-1950s when he penned The Black Orchid, which became a hit film in 1958 starring Anthony Quinn and Sophia Loren. He moved to Hollywood in 1960 and started work with Hitchcock on an adaptation of a Robert Bloch novel for the big screen. The project became Psycho. Stefano's other celebrated screenplays have included Eye of the Cat and Home for the Holidays »
