The view from behind the Psycho (1960) house at Revue Studio (Los Angeles). MCA bought the Universal Studios lot in 1958 and was renamed Revue Studios. Following the acquisition of Decca Records, the then-parent of Universal Pictures, the studio backlot name was changed back to Universal. In 1964, MCA formed Universal City Studios, to merged the Motion Picture and Television arms of both Universal Pictures and Revue Productions. Revue was officially renamed Universal Television in 1966.
