The success of Psycho jump-started Perkins' career, but he soon began to suffer from typecasting. However, when Perkins was asked whether he would have still taken the role knowing that he would be typecast afterward, he replied with a definite "yes".

Until her death, Leigh continued to receive strange and sometimes threatening calls, letters, and even tapes detailing what they would like to do to Marion Crane. One letter was so "grotesque" that she passed it along to the FBI, two of whose agents visited Leigh and told her the culprits had been located and that she should notify the FBI if she received any more letters of that type.

Norman's mother was voiced by Paul Jasmin, Virginia Gregg, and Jeanette Nolan, who also provided some screams for Lila's discovery of the mother's corpse. The three voices were thoroughly mixed, except for the last speech, which is all Gregg's.

Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    I will not cast away my physic but on those that are sick.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. Cast about, and see if this feeling has not injured every person you have ever known to fall into it.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
    within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the
    health of my countenance, and my God.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm XLII (l. XLII, 11)
