Janet Leigh’s career changed the moment Alfred Hitchcock stabbed her in the shower. Hers was the scream heard around the world. Before her fateful death scene at the Bates Motel, Leigh enjoyed steady work in comedies, dramas, romances and Westerns, often as the good girl. Her brief time onscreen in 1960’s Psycho not only earned Leigh her only Academy Award nomination but also elevated the perky ingénue and wholesome love interest to edgy icon and cinematic legend. Her future roles as mother, career woman and musical star would not outshine the forty-five seconds that shocked audiences and forever changed film.
