“We all go a little mad
sometimes! Haven’t you?” Create your very own motel sign nightlight—you’ll want
it once it gets dark—and enjoy a glass of wine, then spend the rest of your
evening with Norman Bates and his domineering mother via our screening of what
just might be Alfred Hitchcock’s most superb suspense film. Starring Anthony
Perkins as Norman Bates and adapted from a Robert Bloch novel loosely based on
the case of convicted killer Ed Gein, Psycho
was initially red-lighted by Paramount Pictures until the director agreed
to finance the film himself. While most film buffs know that Janet Leigh’s
infamous shower scene was shot over a seven-day period and featured 77
different camera angles, few realize that the inspiration for the Bates’ home
was Edward Hopper’s iconic 1925 painting House
by the Railroad, now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
