    She fell over on my desk and reminded me of Marion Crane.

      Ah yes, a certain lady who absconded money from her boss and ended up staying at this hotel on the old highway ran by this fella, who was a twisted mama's boy.

      Poor dollie to have such a vile unlucky name. great outfit though. please make sure she doesn't take any showers.

      Did you know that her name in the book was Mary and they changed it Marion for the movie because a lady, who worked for the studio had this name and asked Mr Hitchcock by letter to please not use her name for a character from some cheap horror movie.

      Did she lose her hair in the movie? I don't remember that part.
      !-)

      I thought I knew all the Psycho trivia, but I didn't know about the name change! Thanks, Geo! My brain's a bit bigger now. Now my hat will never fit. : )

      Smart alec. Oh, and "Minor Lapses." Okay, you come up with the best groups! (Still haven't gotten together a "what's in her bag" photo because I'm lame.)

      Sal, you've given me a mission! Must make her look "Sal worthy." : )

      LOL,,, I don't have a life so I read a lot of the crazest crap put out there about movies. However, I do recomend Psycho, the novel by Robert Bloch.

      I like her bald..Although, I have a fashion queen and those wigs are fun... Still her head is so Symmetrical and perfectly featured that I think she could go bald and get away with it. Besides it make her edgy. Isn't she a cyborg who was made in 1899 out of glass and locked away for a hundred years? If they locked her up because she wouldn't wear a wig then that is wrong on so many levels..

      I used to want to read the novel Vertigo was based on, but I don't have any idea if there's an English translation. What did you think of the novel for Psycho? I assume you saw the movie first; it must be really strange to READ the shower scene! And yeah, I like this doll bald, too, for all the reasons you say! This is a different doll than my cyborg one (not only do I like her bald but sometimes I leave the top half of her head off. haha) They do resemble each other, though. Here she is:

      The shower scene wasn't the big scene it was in the movie. She had her haed cut off in the book in the shower. Norman Bates was older. other then that the movie mirrors the book.

      I wish I could read Vertigo. I believe there must be one that came out especially after the movie based on it hit theatres.

      There she is in all her Cyper-glass glory. Who could lock her away. I see what you mean it is a different doll.

      Just when I thought the shower scene couldn't be any worse! OUCH

      OH YOU ARE SO DEAD-ON (no pun intended) WITH THIS ONE! Totally Marion Crane down!

      And good Lord, that doll with her skull cap off - it's like some nightmare from "Metropolis!" ::running away::

      Hot crackers! Mr. Cassidy wasn't kidding when he told Lowery he'd take that $40,000 out of her fine soft flesh. His daughter may not have known a sad day in her life, but this doll looks like she could tell a few tales.
