shower scene Psycho (courtesy Universal)

Mention "the shower scene" and everyone knows what you're talking about, even if they haven't seen "Psycho." Turns out the actress Janet Leigh was never completely nude for the filming. That silhouette behind the shower curtain was Playboy bunny Marli Renfro, Leigh's body double. Renfro describes what it was like to shoot the now iconic scene. Produced by Studio 360's Jess Jiang.
