    ?  I GUESS.

    Ok.  I thought of more for this answer. Usually, like Churchill, we already know so much about the person's life that we want to explore the years that we do not know.

    I admit that I can't recall seeing any film in that genre, yet, I bet I would like that type of film.

    And, I'm unsure of what it says about me, but I do remember thinking I'd have liked to have watched that TV series about the younger years of the fictional "Norman Bates." Yikes. (I never watched it, though.)

    It is amazing to me how much Hitchcock portrayed about him without telling us anything.  Shiverrrrrr

    Good point. You're right.

    Came across this photo of Perkins and Jane Fonda --  maybe Norman played basketball in his younger years? (Perkins looks adorable here to me.)
