PSYCHO at Bryant Park Film Festival 6/18
This Monday, June 18, I'll help kick off the 20th anniversary Bryant Park Film Festival in NYC by co-hosting a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO. Able co-host Scott Adlerberg and I will conduct a pre-film discussion in the park's outdoor "Reading Room" area off 42nd St., as part of the series "Word-for-Word Reel Talks." We'll be talking about the film, the 1959 Robert Bloch novel it's based on, and other various and sundry topics. The lawn opens at 5 p.m., with the discussion at 7 p.m. and the film at dusk, weather permitting. You can read Bosley Crowther's original New York Times review, from June 17, 1960, here.
