Goofs

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.

In fact, the only time Perkins actually appeared onscreen as Mrs. Bates was during the big-reveal climax in the fruit-cellar. Doubles and stand-ins were also used during the shower murder for reasons of convenience and deception.
