persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

And every now and then I read something very odd...

"I had a personal hand in making a mask that perhaps is one of the most famous in movie history. Dawn got a skull from a medical surplus house and let me help him with his project. A new skull is bright white because it's been bleached. We had to age the skull by putting yellow and brown lines on it, then rubbing them off. Because the mask was Anthony Perkin's mother in PSYCHO, we had to put hair on it." page 78.

Jerry Mathers, writing in "...And Jerry Mathers as 'The Beaver'", explaining how he worked on the set of Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO, and his contribution to movie history. I also recall the "Beav" was hired by Alfred Hatchplot for the movie THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY, which was his initial role before he got on that show.

Trivia. Good trivia.
