Book Vs Movie Psycho Norman Bates in book & movie forms are discussed here as the Margos talk about the Robert Bloch novel versus the Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece The Margos are here Mother, and we are going to talk about Psycho whether she likes it or not! The 1960 masterpiece by Alfred Hitchcock is considered one of the best horror films of all time and typecasted Anthony Perkins for decades as the nebbishy killer Norman Bates (though he eventually embraced his most recognizable role.) The story of Norman and the fate of Marion Crane are a part of movie history but did you know it was a book first? Robert Bloch based his most fictional character on 50s Wisconsin killer Ed Gein (who will also be mentioned in our next episode…) What else can we say? Listen to this episode to hear us talk about the novel & film while we decide which we like better. In this ep the Margos discuss: Author Robert Bloch and his history with pulp novels/magazines Changes between the novel and movie The incredible art direction and cinematography that makes the move a classic after 70 years The cast: Anthony Perkins (Norman Bates,) Janet Leigh (Marion Crane,) Vera Miles (Lila Crane,) John Gavin (Sam Loomis,) and Martin Balsam (Detective Arbogast.)
