Saturday 9 Halloween Edition

Saturday 9: "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" Theme



This week's song was chosen because this is the last Saturday 9 before Halloween. Are you unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


1) The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was born in England. Name another pop culture contribution England has made.

The most well known group of course would be the Beatles


2) This week's song is recognized as the theme to Hitchcock's long-running TV show, but "Funeral March for a Marionnette" is a classic piece written for piano in the late 1870s by Charles Gounod. Do you often listen to classical music?

No, not any more

3) Janet Leigh's shower scene in  Hitchcock's Psycho is considered one of the scariest sequences ever filmed. What's the most frightening movie you've ever seen?

I wish I could remember.  I don't watch scary movies, but I'm sure there have been scenes in movies that would have been quite frightening.

4) Hitchcock admitted that he "never trusted birds," and he took that fear and turned it into the movie, The Birds. Is there a member of the animal kingdom that just gives you "the creeps?"

No words required!





5) Halloween will soon be upon us. Will you carve a jack o'lantern this year?


No

6) What candy will trick or treaters get at your house?

Assortment

7)  When you went trick or treating, did you prefer fantasy costumes (like a storybook character) or scary ones (like a monster)?

I did not dress up at all

8)  Which candy was your favorite?

Candy corn

 Which one were you disappointed to find in your trick or treat bag?

Our trick or treating in rural Louisiana in the 50's was a community event and not something we did door-to-door.

9) Which do you find scarier -- cemeteries or haunted houses?

Cemeteries are not scary to me and I stay away from haunted houses.

  3. Oh, I wish I'd known you when we were kids! I would have gladly given you my candy corn. I'm afraid mine just went stale.

  4. My older sisters convinced me that the three colors of candy corn were different flavors. I used to try and try to taste the difference!
