Very Sissy Man: "Norman Bates"
from the movie Psycho (1960)
played by Anthony Perkins (April 4, 1932 - Sept. 12, 1992)
Was there ever another Mama’s Boy like Norman Bates? Just a shy, nervous young man with a sweet tooth for candy corn, running an out-of-the-way motel. Then sexy blonde Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) shows up, and Norman feels a little, um... confused. Under the watchful eyes of all of those birds (which he stuffed himself; it’s a hobby), he plays Peeping Tom (another hobby). But there’s Mother up at the house. Norman has a talk with her and thinks Mother is just a tiny bit jealous. So, that leaves only one thing he can do: Hide Mother’s corpse in the cellar, dress in her clothes, stab the naked blonde to death with a kitchen knife, then blame it all on Mom!
Well, we all go a little crazy sometimes.
