Joe Dante on "Family Plot"

2 November 2010 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Although Alfred Hitchcock was working with Ernest Lehmann on the script for a project titled The Short Night at the time of his death, this light-hearted suspense thriller proved to be his final outing. In retrospect it's not viewed as equal to his best efforts, but he was 77 when he made it and it's actually a bit hipper than the preceding Topaz and Torn Curtain. »

A History of... Julie Andrews

1 October 2010 9:51 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

To celebrate the 75th birthday of the great Julie Andrews, our favorite singing governness, our favorite magical nanny, our favorite gender bending toast of Paris. Something big was in order. Why, she's practically perfect in every way... so in her honor, a resurrection of a long dormant exhaustively researched 100% true* series that was once the Film Experience's most popular feature.

1935 Julia Wells is born to Mrs. Barbara Wells in Surrey, England. Mr. Wells is not the father. Scandal! This bastard child will one day become the icon of squeaky clean family entertainment. She won't always enjoy it. At her christening the good fairy Fauna grants her the gift of song

One gift, the gift of song,

Melody your whole life long!

The nightingale her troubadour,

Bringing his sweet serenade to her door.(We figure that's the only way you get a voice that lovely.)

1940 Having already recognized the fairy's generous gift, »

Celebrating 50 years of the Psycho theme

5 August 2010 5:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With a few jabs of orchestral strings, composer Bernard Herrmann created one of the most iconic themes in all cinema. Jeff celebrates 50 years of Psycho

A classic horror soundtrack doesn't need much to become iconic. A simple two-note ostinato did it for Jaws. A recurring staccato keyboard and synthesized drone became Halloween. Harry Manfredini's ghostly reverberating voice haunted Friday The 13th. But ask anyone the most memorable scary film music of all time, and you'll likely get the stabbing strings underscoring Janet Leigh's murder in Psycho, which recently turned 50 years old.

Composed and conducted by the legendary Bernard Herrmann, who trained at Julliard and later broke into the filmmaking world with Orson Welles via the Mercury Theater and Citizen Kane, Psycho is more than just a musical effect. It's a fully realized score that's perfectly married to the psyche of the film and its characters.
