Rare Behind-the-Scenes Photos of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Horror Film 'Psycho' (1960)

One of the most talked about movies of its day was Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960), and nearly fifty years later, film lovers still discuss it. While initially receiving mixed reviews, it is now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films and is highly praised as a work of cinematic art.

The film is based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Robert Bloch, which is based loosely on the case of convicted Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein. Like Gein, Bloch’s protagonist Norman Bates, is a solitary murderer in an isolated rural location, has a deceased domineering mother, and has sealed off one room in his house as a shrine to his mother.

  1. For Psycho fans, here are many photos that are, indeed, rare. In 60 years of reading and researching this great film, I for one had not seen many of these anywhere else before. Thanks for posting them.
