Movie Clip

City That Never Sleeps (1953) - Take The Service Elevator Continuing the omniscient narration, by the “voice of the city,” (Chicago), we meet William Talman as thief Stewart, Ron Hagerthy his sidekick, Edward Arnold as lawyer Biddell, Marie Windsor his wife, Gig Young again as Johnny, whom we didn’t know was a cop, and Paula Raymond as the wife we know he’s thinking of leaving, early in City That Never Sleeps, 1953.
City That Never Sleeps (1953) - I Am The City Opening projecting the extraordinary tone which will permeate the piece, narration by Chill Wills who will appear as a character, introducing the automated Wally Cassell, cynical and bitter Gig Young and Mala Powers, and sparky Bunny Kacher as Agnes, John H. Auer directing from Steve Fisher’s original screenplay, in City That Never Sleeps, 1953.
Psycho (1960) - These Extended Lunch Hours Producer-Director Alfred Hitchcock letting designer Saul Bass and composer Bernard Hermann drive, the opening to Psycho, 1960, then introducing already-disrobed Janet Leigh as Marion and John Gavin as her lover Sam, in a cheap Phoenix hotel room.
Psycho (1960) - Of Course I'm Glad To See You! We had little idea Marion (Janet Leigh) would make off with the $40,000 cash her boss gave her for safe keeping, imagining what her debt-ridden lover (John Gavin) will say, and she didn’t expect to see the boss (Vaughn Tyler) as she departs Phoenix, early in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, 1960.
Psycho (1960) - Cabin Number One Following the murder (in the shower) of Marion (Janet Leigh, not seen), evidently by his crazed elderly mother, lonely motel manager Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) gets busy hiding the evidence, not noticing her stolen cash in the newspaper, in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, 1960.
Psycho (1960) - Nobody Ever Stops Here Panicked because she’s stolen $40,000 from her employer, Marion (Janet Leigh) has wandered off the main road in a rainstorm and found the Bates Motel, where Norman (Anthony Perkins, his first scene) explains that’s the only way they get any business, in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, 1960.
Psycho (1960) - We All Go A Little Mad Having fallen into an intense impromptu discussion, especially about institutionalizing his disturbed mother, nervous Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) has inadvertently persuaded rare motel guest Marion (Janet Leigh) that she needs to return the money she stole, in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, 1960.
Moonrise - Girl From The Sticks Danny (Dane Clark), nervous after killing rival "Jerry" but not yet suspected, confronts Gilly (Gail Russell) about her ostensibly "missing" suitor, in an intense scene from Frank Borzage's Moonrise, 1948.
Moonrise - You Look Scared Danny (Dane Clark), who's just killed "Jerry" in the woods, grabs Gilly (Gail Russell) off the dance floor and takes a reckless drive (with Harry Carey Jr. in the back seat) in Frank Borzage's Moonrise, 1948.
Moonrise - Out Of Your Class Directly from the opening and complete with flashbacks, Danny (Dane Clark), son of a hanged convict, confronts life-long rival Sykes (Lloyd Bridges) in director Frank Borzage's Moonrise, 1948.
Moonrise - Open, Danny Hawkins Opening sequence and scene in which the hero Danny (who will be Dane Clark) is introduced as a boy, ridiculed over his father's hanging, from Frank Borzage's Moonrise, 1948.
