    Introducing The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra

    Introducing The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra

    Hosted and narrated by John Stamos, The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra is a complicated, nuanced story of one imperfect man trying to redeem himself by pulling off the perfect crime. Did you ever feel like everything’s broken, and it’s your job to fix it? That’s how Barry Keenan was feeling back in 1963. He was broke, unemployed, hooked on booze and pills, and his family was falling apart. Barry needed a miracle. And against all odds, he got one. One day the voice of God came over the radio in Barry’s car and told him there was a simple solution to all his problems: all he had to do was kidnap Frank Sinatra, Jr. For the first time ever, Barry Keenan shares his version of the bizarre story in his own words, from beginning to end. This is just a preview of The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra, but you can listen to full episodes at wondery.fm/TGS_InsideSeries.

    She Wouldn’t Even Harm a Fly

    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. Do you hear something?

    Shock and Awe

    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.

    Men Do Kill Nude Women You Know

    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.

A Must For Hitchcock Fans!!

I enjoyed this podcast immensely!! I’ve always been fascinated by Hitchcock, and Psycho is my favorite production of his. I loved the history and little trivia about the film. Can’t wait for another season into another classic? Or maybe another Hitchcock film? 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Great podcast a must listen

For Hitchcock and Psycho fans this is a must listen. Great creep factor mixed with interesting facts and information.

SKIP!!! Lame...

Voices and suspense music and setup are great...then no substance. Totally lame! Def skip this waste of time. Wondery is usually so much better-can win them all?
