Janet Leigh steals some money from her employer and drives off into the country where she stops for the night at the remote Bates Motel. Here she meets motel owner Anthony Perkins and after having dinner with him, she makes the mistake of taking a shower. This is one of Alfred Hitchcock's great horror films.The now infamous shower scene is still shocking even though you know what will happen. The whole film is enhanced by Bernard Herrmann's score. This is a classic film, combining quality direction, production, acting and story.
