The big revelation in yesterday’s DVD Beaver review of the new Psycho Bluray (the all-region British version, that is — the American Bluray won’t be out until 10.19) is that you can now see makeup on Martin Balsam’s face in that one close-up he has. Amazing! I love being able to see stuff that you weren’t intended to see, but which Bluray has now revealed.

Martin Balsam’s “Detective Arbogast” in his very first appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Notice the makeup base spread over his upper cheeks and just under his eyes.
