In the on-set scene in which Arbogast (Martin Balsam in the original Psycho) is about to be stabbed, Anthony Perkins' character is seen sitting nearby in drag as Norman-as-Mrs.-Bates.

Doubles and stand-ins were also used during the shower murder for reasons of convenience and deception.
As Hitch addresses his audience at the end of the picture, he tells us that he is bereft of ideas for his next picture... then a large, black bird lands on his shoulder.
