    Frenzy (1972) Alfred Hitchcock

    My dad was working on a film in Hollywood, one location shoot was out where the house exterior for Psycho (which had recently wrapped) was located.  Back in those days, for extended location shoots they would set the whole crew up in little caravan-style trailer camps, which essentially turned into PARTY TOWN every night. 

    So, one night, he and some of the camera crew guys had been drinking and went poking around the Psycho set.  They stood around goofing for a while and one thing led to another.  One of the camera guys had dared a sound man to spend the night alone in the house.  Not wanting to be thought ill of by his co-workers, he agreed.  There was one condition though.  He had to be handcuffed to a tripod overnight so they knew he stayed there. 

    Now, back then, a tripod could way three hundred pounds.  Again, he agreed.  They went and fetched a thermos of cocoa to keep him warm and nourished overnight and made their exit.  About halfway back to the trailer camp, the camera guy who initially made the wager, told everyone in the group that he had made sure to fortify the thermos of cocoa with an entire sheet of Ex-lax.
