Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 20

Hitchcock is all the rage.

I don't mean the films of Hitchcock. I mean the man himself. Or at least some less than appealing stories about the man.

One of those stories can be found in The Girl, which premieres tonight on HBO. This movie is based on a book by Donald Spoto (who wrote one really great book about Hitchcock's movies, and then turned around and wrote a couple of hatchet jobs about Hitchcock, the man).

For fun, here's a look at the trailer for Hitchcock, which will be a theatrical release, and stars Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock. Frankly, it looks to be the better movie...
