A Phoenix secretary embezzles $40,000 from her employer's client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote motel run by a young man under the domination of his mother.
The first scene to be shot was of Marion getting pulled over by the cop. This was filmed on Golden State Highway (U.S. 99).
People always mean well. They cluck their thick tongues and shake their heads and suggest oh, so very delicately...
Det. Arbogast phones in about the Bates Motel and Norman. Later, he returns to the motel to investigate. There is a reaction shot of him looking at the Bates house. The sky in the background is clear and uniform. Arbogast glances behind him to make sure he isn't shadowed and then starts out for the house. Now, the sky in the background is obviously cloudy.
