  1. Frenzy was supposedly born from another film Hitchcock wanted to make in the late 60's called Kaleidoscope. He had seen what Antonioni did with Blow-Up and wanted a more free-style avant-garde style of shooting for his next film. He envisioned an idea where an American bodybuilder would lose control and strangle women whenever he got close to large amounts of water. They shot an hours worth of footage, then showed it to Universal Pictures. They baulked at the idea because it was just relentless nudity and gratuitous violence. BBC piece on it here: https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/20180620-why-hitchcocks-kaleidoscope-was-too-shocking-to-be-made
