Q. Who was the actress in the shower scene in the original film version of "Psycho"? — K.I., Framingham
A. Janet Leigh was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of the victim in the stabbing scene which, according to cinema historian Leslie Halliwell, was directed by Saul Bass, not by Alfred Hitchcock, the director and producer of record. Bass was an artist and animator best known for his innovative title designs for a number of motion pictures.
