It’s the inside story of the legendary shower scene, from the nudist on set, to Janet Leigh’s unending efforts to maintain some decency, to the answer to the longstanding question: Do you actually see the knife disappear into a body or not? We review the sounds of stabbing, the practical jokes that had everyone in stitches (except Janet Leigh), the novel introduction of a toilet to an American movie, the did-she-or-didn’t-she blink moment, and the very real possibility that the entire shower scene could have played in silence. Plus, you meet the famous child actor from the 1950’s who helped glue hairs into the head of Norman’s mother’s corpse. All the while, Hitchcock is convinced that the picture he’s making is, in a word, awful.
