“I can’t necessarily remember what I said, but all I do remember is regretting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was,” Harry told ITV. He shared that had he known it was the last time he was speaking to his mother, he would have done things differently. “Looking back at it now — it’s incredibly hard. I have to deal with that for the rest of my life: not knowing that it was the last time I’d speak to my mum, how differently that conversation would have panned out if I’d had even the slightest inkling that her life was going to be taken that night.”

Prince William, in this documentary, said that both of them were running around, playing with their cousins, having a great time and were in a hurry to say goodbye and cut the phone. “If I’d known what was going to happen I wouldn’t have been quite so blase about it,” the Duke of Cambridge said. “That phone call sticks in my mind quite heavily.”

The brothers, aged 35 and 32, have opened their family album for the nation to see and given it the most in-depth insight into their mother’s life at Kensington Palace. Prince Harry recalls few of the most cheerful childhood moments. He also mentioned that Diana, their mother was a “kid through and through.”

Prince William, in his statement, said that both the brothers felt incredibly loved and they are grateful that they can still feel it.

It was intended to cause people to scream and yell, but I was horrified that some people took it seriously.” Hitchcock’s film ‘Psycho’ changed the heartbeat of the world, and made the shower-scene immortal. And the documentary 78/52 aims to explore just that!

78/52, directed by Alexandre O. Philippe will present a detailed frame-by-frame analysis of the iconic shower scene from Psycho in an attempt to know more about ‘the man behind the curtain’.

If you are wondering about it, ‘78/52’ refers to the 78 set-ups and the 52 cuts that were taken to accomplish the iconic shower scene; a singular event that had taken one-quarter of Psycho’s shooting schedule.

For director O. Philippe, the murder in the shower scene was a critical and defining cultural moment; he calls it “the most important scene in the history of motion pictures”. According to him, the 3-minute long scene was “the culmination of decades of experimentation for Mr. Hitchcock, and the purest expression of his absolute mastery of the art and craft of film-making.”

Analyzing ‘The Man Behind The Curtain’

Hitchock had once admitted that the shower scene was his only motivation to make a film in the first place. And rightly so! The film (and the scene) went on to become one of the most celebrated works in the global film-making industry.
