Re: A&E devloping Psycho prequel series
Oh, I totally agree that Bloch (along with plenty of other authors and screenwriters) deserve much more credit for their contributions. Value added content for Hitchcock films tends to suggest that Hitchcock exercised total control over his screenwriters, firing them if they didn't do exactly what he wanted. (1) This is probably an exaggeration and (2) It manages to ignore the fact that most of Hitchcock's films were adaptations of books or plays.
