Dr. Warren Chapin- Ladies and gentlemen, please do not panic! But SCREAM! Scream for your lives!
Fact-Janet Leigh never again took showers after filming Psycho.
(When asked if it was true that she doesn’t take showers) “It’s actually, honestly true. And not because of the shooting of it. It was the seeing of it. It never dawned on me how truly vulnerable we are. But that’s what Alfred Hitchcock did”. A shower. A bird. All these things that are absolutely ordinary, he made extraordinary. –Janet Leigh 1027-2004
“One thing is certain: the arts keep you alive. They stimulate, encourage, challenge, and, most of all, guarantee a future free from boredom. They allow growth and even demand it in that time of life we call maturity but too often enter it with a childish faith that what we learned in youth is sustenance enough for the years when most men are mentally famished but won’t admit it—or when they are apt to curb their hunger with the sops of complacency, security, and the assurance of death.”- Vincent Price
The schoolhouse, in Bodega Bay, California, has also been known to be haunted, even back during the filming. According to Tippi Hedren, the entire cast was spooked to be there. She also mentioned how she had the feeling, while there, that “the building was immensely populated… but there was nobody there.” When Hitchcock was told about the schoolhouse being haunted, according to Hedren, he was even more encouraged to film there.
In the scene where the fishbowl falls to the ground, (dead) sardines painted orange were used in place of actual goldfish, which director Richard Donner refused to kill for the sake of making a movie.
