Thanks to Seth Levi, I finally watched Pyscho


Some things I learned:

  • Showing a toilet on screen was extremely rare. Apparently including a toilet was more shocking than the famous shower murder scene.
  • Showing an unmarried man and woman in the same bed was very risqué at the time.
  • Hitchcock uses lingerie to depict Janet Leigh's state of mind. It's white before her decision to embezzle money, and black afterwards. Very clever.
