This study places the shower scene in Hitchcock's Psycho within its cinematic, sociological and critical contexts. It locates the film within the personal and professional experiences of the author. The methodology depends upon a melding of first person narration with a close analysis of the film's mise en scene and montage, as these techniques evolve in Hitchcock's oeuvre and culminate in the shower scene.
