    Does John Prine have an international audience?

    Catsup must look pretty good when using ortho film! But I would think a model would approve of chocolate sauce over a barbeque sauce!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Sorry Ian, I miss the reference as I don't know his music.

However in any scene such as the shower scene when blood mixes and is diluted by water, it does it in a certain way and I'd have thought that a substance such as chocolate sauce would behave radically different when mixed with water. I wonder what the trick is to make sauce act like blood in water while still looking like blood?

    A friend worked in Hollywood FX dept. He said they chilled down the Hershey's chocolate syrup to make it thicker. Also that shower was COLD in Psycho.

    Thanks Rusty for the info. It can be an interesting talking point now both for Psycho fans and those enjoying B&W films. Some stand out for being B&W. Psycho is one and High Noon is another.

    I find Smucker's Dove Dark Chocolate has a nice deep color and contrast.

    George Romero used Bosco for Night of the Living Dead.
