Barbara Bel Geddes,
This documentary is a narrated account of the making of Alfred Hitchcock's film, Torn Curtain (1966). Much of this documentary focuses on the difficulties of making the film, and of course, how it all came together in the end.

A retrospective on the entire movie, from start to finish. There are interviews with many of the principle cast and crew (including Janet Leigh and Joseph Stefano), who all talk openly and lovingly about entire process of making the film. The sessions with Janet Leigh are particularly involving, and she talks a great deal about shooting the now infamous shower scene. Written by
This documentary, which is an extra on certain "Psycho" DVD's, is one of the best I've ever watched. It lasts just over an hour and a half, which is quite long, considering the film is fairly old and many of it's actors have passed on.
The documentary gives a real incite into the making of the picture. With comments from assistant Peggy Robertson, co-director Hilton A. Green and star Janet Leigh among others. The making of delves deep into how the picture was inspired, how the actors were cast and problems that arose during filming.
However the documentary does not contain comments from other stars Vera Miles and John Gavin which is a big disappointment. As I would love to hear Vera Miles' thoughts on Hitchock. Another shame is that Anthony Perkins died years prior to the making of the documentary so no comments are available from him which is another shame.
But overall a very well presented "Making Of".
