Janet Leigh

Best known as the woman stabbed to death in Psycho's infamous shower scene, actress Janet Leigh has passed away at age 77.

Besides that signature role, she had a long and distinguished career, starring in movies with leading men such as Van Johnson, Van Heflin, Robert Mitchum, James Stewart, Martin and Lewis, John Wayne, Dick Van Dyke, Victor Mature, and Tony Curtis.

Thank you Ms. Leigh.

You can get the "Mad Mother Shower Curtain" here. I always wanted one of those.

Hey, I've got that shower curtain! Received it as a gift some ten years ago from my friend Joe 'cause he knew I was a Hitchcock fan...

And, hearts out to scream-queen Jamie Lee Curtis for losing her Mom.

i read somewhere that hitchcock got that scream by turning the water in the shower from pleasantly warm to unbearably cold in a split second and without warning her.

whenever my shower water goes cold, i always think of someone stabbing me with a foot-long knife.

...and now you're imagining me cold, wet and naked, and being stabbed with a knife. oops.

My imagination's not that good. I can probably manage the "wet and naked" part, can I forget the "cold" and "knife"? ;)
