Harold (played by Jeffrey Hunter) I guess is a student of true crime who wants to become a criminal psychologist and is fascinated by it and the little crime spree that’s going around his school at this time is perfect for him and he becomes consumed by it.

Daphne (played by Hollywood Goddess Vera Miles) is a doctor and plays Harold’s boyfriend. She’s late for a dinner party one night and her and her boyfriend arrive separately at the the party and ends up taking a walk in the woods where apparently the killer has been wandering through. Her friends and boyfriend find out about it and give her a hard time about it, even though she doesn’t think it’s a big deal.

Harold become obsess with this true crime story to the point that it consumes him and he wants to solve the case himself and find out why the killer is committing these crime and get into his head. He tries to get into the mind of the killer to the point that he becomes the killer himself as far as he’s acting and at one point tries to kill his girlfriend Daphne and ends up getting arrested and sent to a mental institution.

Vera Miles, was perfect for Alfred Hitchcock, similar to Diana Dors or Grace Kelly, because she was drop-dead gorgeous and yet so adorable that she could seem childlike and yet very sexy as well, and also very smart and witty. Which is why she did both a lot of TV, as well as film work for Hitchcock in the 1950s and 1960s. And continued her career in television in the 1970s making a lot of guess appearances on detective shows, including Hawaii 50, Columbo, Cannon, Mannix, and other shows.

About FredSchneiderUS

I’m a blogger because I like writing about things I’m interested in and knowledgeable about. Which shouldn’t sound surprising, but blogging provides that immediate outlet for me and other bloggers to weigh in on what they’re thinking about and what they’re interested in. To put down on paper or computer words and feelings that they may struggle to get out of their mouths on the spot. To be able think about things and then express them. That is what blogging and writing is about, at least when it comes to commentary. Writing as a reporter or biographer, is a bit different. Because it’s not so much about what the writer feels that is relevant unless they’re being asked about it. But what’s more important is what they know and how they know that based on their reporting. An opportunity for blogger commentators to get things off their chest that perhaps they’re not able to do simply by speaking to people. That is my favorite thing about blogging to be able to immediately get things off my chest that I’m thinking about. Blogging is the perfect form of communication for me, because I’m interested in so many different things and frankly knowledgeable about them. I write mostly about current affairs. Government and politics, public policy, history, but I’m also interested in sports especially sports history, as well as movies especially classic Hollywood and entertainers. Especially entertainers who’ve been around a long time and are from classic Hollywood. Today’s Hollywood and entertainment, not so much, but that is a subject for another piece. And when you’re a blogger and you just read something that got your attention and were really interested in from either a positive or negative standpoint, or perhaps you just saw a movie or saw some story and you’re really interested in and knowledgeable about what you just saw, you can immediately weigh in on what you just saw. I mean to be a blogger all you really need is a computer and have something to say. Being able to write helps as well. That is what blogging and writing is to me. The ability for people to write what they’re thinking and how they feel, as well as what they know. Which is the most important thing here, because even commentators need to know what they’re talking about to be successful and make a living at that. Whether they write or talk on TV or radio, or a combination of all those things. That is what I’m going to do here and if you’re someone who has multiple interests and are interested in things besides who the latest hot celebrity is and who that person is seeing and why they’re in trouble now, or what the latest new technology is, then I hope you check out this blog. Because I cover a lot of different things here and not just government and politics, but history including Hollywood history and to a certain extent what’s going on there today. And you might even see a few pieces about so -called celebrity culture, but just from a a satiric viewpoint.
