Alfred Hitchcock has decided that his next movie would be a horror movie based on the serial killer Ed Gein, instead of making yet-another movie like the previous one. Paramount refuses to finance it, so he and his wife Alma mortgage their house and finance it themselves. Meanwhile Alma tries to convince her husband to read the script that a friend, Whitfield Cook, has written. Hitchcock finds it bad, and Alma, annoyed by her husband attitude and slowly folling in love with the writer, decides to work with Cook to improve his script. Meanwhile, Hitchcock is obsessed by his blonde actresses, a fact that Alma quickly discovers. But she also finds out that Cook has been only seducing her in the hope to get his script made into a movie by her husband. In the end, Paramount hates the movie; Hitchcock edits it with Alma's help, and by some marketing trick manages to make the premiere a success (Paramount initially was showing it only in two theatres).
