Stefano was a new kid on the block and Hitch disliked working with new writers, so Stefano knew he had to sell Hitch on his story treatment.
I will never know but what it doesn't change is what I sacrilegiously find to be the best scene in the film, the dinner between Marion and Norman.
Alfred Hitchcock's film does a nice exploration of the paranoia behind identity crisis and taking on another's appearance; when Norman Bates dresses as his mother, it's like watching a different character.
My recent viewing of the film Hitchcock motivated me to finally sit and down and watch the master's 1960 masterpiece Psycho, the groundbreaking psychological thriller/murder mystery that completely re-defined the career of the amazing Alfred Hitchcock, crowning him the King of Cinematic Suspense.
I watched this film with my wife, she had no idea what the twist in the film would be and fell for it hook line and sinker.
Many other Hitchcock films use lighting for dramatic purposes as well, such as Notorious and Rear Window, but none were used just as well.

Being a massive fan of Alfred Hitchcock and his work in such films as "Vertigo" and "North by Northwest" it was only a matter of time before I finally got around to watching Psycho.
Visuals : The Bates Motel really comes to life , although it actually is a movie set - I thought it was on location filming.
