Alfred Hitchcock's landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), the ill-fated traveler whose journey ends in the notorious “shower scene.” First a private detective, then Marion’s sister (Vera Miles) searches for her, the horror and the suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed. The tension in this legendary thriller has rarely been duplicated, thanks to the master’s superb direction, the crisp black and white cinematography and Bernard Herrmann’s unsettling score. Co-starring John Gavin, Martin Balsam and John McIntire. Screenplay by Joseph Stefano, based on the novel by Robert Bloch.
