1. Saul Bass created the credit sequence. The major Cross- Cutting sequence is when Sam and Marion’s sister separate when they leave cabin #1. 2. The major extreme close-up shot is when they zoomed in on the drain of the tub, where all the water and blood had been going down. As they got closer and closer into the drain it transformed into Marion’s eye. 3. Hitchcock kept everything secret about the script by actually having interviews for the mother’s role. 4. Hitchcock wouldn’t let anyone come in after the movie had started. This helped controlled the experience for the audience. 5. Hitchcock casted Janet Leigh as a lead in the film because she was a big actress, and nobody we ever think that a big star would be killed through half of the movie. 6. Hitchcock tried to write mother in the script somewhere but there was no scene for her. He held interviews for mother’s role, but again no scene or role existed mother. 7. The stealing of the $40,000 made changes on Marion’s part. In the beginning of the film we see Marion dressed in all white, just a little innocent women.

Everything down to her shoes and purse were white, even her gloves. When Marion has stolen the money and has brought it back to her apartment, things seem to change. As she is packing to leave town we see Marion dressed in hues of black and gray. Everything on her is dark. Her purse, shoes and gloves are black. We see that she has down an evil deed and it will stay with her. 8. The major motif in the film is the money. Hitchcock shot the motif with close-ups. Even if the camera had been on an actor or an actress the money was always captured in the picture as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
