Reel Connection: Hitchcock's Inspiration for the Bates House in "Psycho" (1960): Edward Hopper painting: "The House by the Railroad" I'm going to briefly discuss a point I actually mentioned in a previous post about Psycho, but I feel its worth the elaboration.

Protesters claimed inviting Strauss-Kahn to speak at the Cambridge Union could be seen as legitimising sexual violence, while others defended the right to free speech. Demonstrators waving placards reading, "DSK not welcome here", and chanting, "No more violence, no more rape" marched through the city centre before gathering outside the building for speeches.
