Hopper biographer Gail Levin revealed that “as true film aficionados,” Edward and his wife, Jo, “were delighted to learn that Alfred Hitchcock credited the idea for the house in his film Psycho to looking at House by the Railroad.” This Victorian house is skinny, awkward, self-conscious, not quite comfortable in its own skin. Ashamed of its nakedness in this barren landscape. (http://www.alfredhitchcockgeek.com/2009/11/hitchcocks-most-hopperesque-film-psycho.html)
