Plot – Marion Crane is a dissatisfied employee from Phoenix who breaks with her past: she steals $40.000 from her office and runs away. She stops at the motel run by Norman Bates, a shy and awkward guy who lives with his mother in a creepy house next to the motel and has a collection of stuffed animals. While Marion is taking a shower, someone kills her. The following day her boyfriend and her sister start to look for her, helped by detective Arbogast. It is one of the most famous Hitchcock’s films: an experimental movie that ends in the middle - with the murder in the shower - and begins again, frightful and sometimes sarcastic. It is an experiment of sadism, shot in black and white and with a musical score only made of strings, composed by Baernard Herrmann. Perkins made his career with this role.
