    Introducing: The Big Break

    Hollywood has always been a gold rush, and if you strike gold, it’s a rush unlike any other. The world of acting can be cut-throat and full of rejection, or it can be life-affirming and offer limitless possibilities. On The Big Break, Kellie Martin and Chad Lowe talk with fellow actors about that magical moment when they first struck gold, when their lives and careers changed forever. Was it that audition for Rob Reiner? Or was it being cast in a cereal commercial in the 1980s? How did they prepare for opportunity to come knocking? Drawing on their own experiences growing up in show business, Kellie and Chad go all the way back to their guests’ beginnings to learn how some of the most beloved actors of our time got their Big Break.

    She Wouldn’t Even Harm a Fly

    Psycho fever overtakes America, and Alfred Hitchcock is suddenly a very rich man. And with this stunning success comes one haunting fear: What will I do for an encore? That question plagues Hitchcock for the rest of his career, through only six more films, a humiliating defeat at the Academy Awards, the specter of young directors vaulting past the old master, and a final appearance to accept a life achievement award that’s too little and too late. Meanwhile, critical admiration for Psycho grows, and the film’s legacy spawns sequels and remakes and a web of pop culture signposts, even today. We leave you in the cellar of terrifying old house on a lonely hill.

    Shock and Awe

    Hitchcock’s nightmares haunt him as he readies Psycho for release. He tussles with the censors to keep his precious shower scene - the one which does or does not contain nudity, depending on which censor’s opinion you’re listening to. Hitch maps out an elaborate and unprecedented publicity strategy and in the process reinvents the way America goes to the movies. He suffers a rash of scathing reviews from big name critics, one of whom calls Psycho “a very minor work.” Then, Psycho opens - and the world will never be the same. Hitchcock marvels at the lines around every block all across the country. Perhaps his fears were all wrong...or maybe this will be the huge success from which he will never recover.Subscribe to Inside Psycho so you never miss an episode: smarturl.it/InsidepsychoThank you to our sponsors:Audible - Get a free audio book and a 30-day trial when you visit them here: www.audible.com/psychoBlue Apron - Get 3 meals free with free shipping by going to: www.blueapron.com/psychoZip Recruiter - Try Zip Recruiter for free by going to: www.ziprecruiter.com/psychoWe'd like to hear from you!

    Men Do Kill Nude Women You Know

    It’s the inside story of the legendary shower scene, from the nudist on set, to Janet Leigh’s unending efforts to maintain some decency, to the answer to the longstanding question: Do you actually see the knife disappear into a body or not? We review the sounds of stabbing, the practical jokes that had everyone in stitches (except Janet Leigh), the novel introduction of a toilet to an American movie, the did-she-or-didn’t-she blink moment, and the very real possibility that the entire shower scene could have played in silence. Plus, you meet the famous child actor from the 1950’s who helped glue hairs into the head of Norman’s mother’s corpse. All the while, Hitchcock is convinced that the picture he’s making is, in a word, awful.Subscribe to Inside Psycho so you never miss an episode: smarturl.it/InsidepsychoThank you to our sponsors:Audible - Get a free audio book and a 30-day trial when you visit them here: www.audible.com/psychoBlue Apron - Get 3 meals free with free shipping by going to: www.blueapron.com/psychoZip Recruiter - Try Zip Recruiter for free by going to: www.ziprecruiter.com/psychoWe'd like to hear from you!

    Time To Shoot

    What do you do when your studio hates your next picture? If you’re Alfred Hitchcock, you put up your own money and risk everything on it. Psycho was a movie everybody in town said couldn’t get made - it would be the movie that would ruin Hitchcock’s career, they said. Or would it? Hitchcock casts his Norman Bates and his “perfectly ordinary” Marion Crane. Hear how the voice of Norman’s mother evolves from a series of hilarious celebrity prank calls, how Hitch navigates the performance of one actor he called “the stiff.” Then, he swears the cast and crew to secrecy, and production begins on the biggest bet of Hitchcock’s career.Subscribe to Inside Psycho so you never miss an episode: smarturl.it/InsidepsychoThank you to our sponsors:Audible - Get a free audio book and a 30-day trial when you visit them here: www.audible.com/psychoBlue Apron - Get 3 meals free with free shipping by going to: www.blueapron.com/psychoZip Recruiter - Try Zip Recruiter for free by going to: www.ziprecruiter.com/psychoWe'd like to hear from you!

    Bloch and Hitchcock

    When a struggling writer, Robert Bloch, discovers the story of a strange man in Wisconsin who killed and mutilated his victims, he transforms it into a story about the twisted relationship between a man and his mother: Psycho. Later, he realizes his fictions come closer to the dark truth than he ever could have imagined. That’s when his book is optioned by an anonymous Hollywood buyer for next to nothing. That buyer turns out to be Alfred Hitchcock. We meet Hitch on his deathbed, rewind through key moments, and end with Hitch savoring only one of the 2,400 submissions his office had reviewed. This would be his next picture: Psycho.Subscribe to Inside Psycho so you never miss an episode: smarturl.it/InsidepsychoThank you to our sponsors:Audible - Get a free audio book and a 30-day trial when you visit them here: www.audible.com/psychoBlue Apron - Get 3 meals free with free shipping by going to: www.blueapron.com/psychoZip Recruiter - Try Zip Recruiter for free by going to: www.ziprecruiter.com/psychoWe'd like to hear from you!

    The Butcher of Plainfield

    A mild and meek man who was unusually attached to his domineering mother. That’s the story of Ed Gein, who murdered numerous middle-aged women in and around Plainfield, WI in the 1950’s, and whose story inspired the character of Norman Bates. The story of Psycho begins in a dingy, remote cabin, where Gein collected bits and pieces of his subjects and fashioned them into chairs, lampshades, or worse. All his victims were chosen because they reminded him of his mother. When he was buried, this was engraved on the headstone beside his: “Augusta Gein: Mother.” Gein’s story is a chilling beginning to one of the most famous stories in movie history.Subscribe to Inside Psycho so you never miss an episode: smarturl.it/InsidepsychoThank you to our sponsors:Audible - Get a free audio book and a 30-day trial when you visit them here: www.audible.com/psychoBlue Apron - Get 3 meals free with free shipping by going to: www.blueapron.com/psychoZip Recruiter - Try Zip Recruiter for free by going to: www.ziprecruiter.com/psychoWe'd like to hear from you!
