Mike Douglas: Alfred Hitchock and James Brown

While promoting his movie Topaz, Hitchcock stops by the Mike Douglas show.

Other guests on the show include: bestselling poet and songwriter Rod McKuen ("Seasons in the Sun," Listen to the Warm), Joan Rivers (when she was a mousy housewife comedian you could look at without wincing), and the one and only James Brown.

When this was re-aired, the host of the syndicated package mocked Brown for getting the name of "Psycho" wrong, and calling it "Homicidal." What the Godfather of Soul was referring to is the very Hitchcockian William Castle 1961 chiller of the same name.
