Janet Leigh (born Jeanette Morrison; July 6, 1927 – October 3, 2004) was an American actress, singer, dancer, and author. She is best known for her performance in Psycho (1960), for which she was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and received an Academy Award nomination.

Leigh began her career as a child actress in the 1930s, and gained prominence for her work in a number of films directed by Alfred Hitchcock, including The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) and Psycho (1960). She also appeared in films such as Little Women (1949), Scaramouche (1952), The Naked Spur (1953), and Touch of Evil (1958).

Leigh was married to actor Tony Curtis from 1951 to 1962, with whom she had two daughters, Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis. She later married Robert Brandt in 1964, with whom she had a son, Thomas Leigh Brandt.

Early Life

Janet Leigh was born Jeanette Morrison on July 6, 1927, in Merced, California, the only child of Helen Luelle (née Warner; 1895–1988) and Frederick Robert Morrison (1897–1934). Her parents were both of Scottish descent. Leigh’s maternal grandparents were immigrants from Glasgow, and her paternal grandparents were immigrants from Ireland.

Leigh’s parents divorced when she was a child, and she was raised by her mother. She attended Merced High School, where she was active in drama and music. She graduated from high school in 1945.

Career

Leigh began her film career as a child actress in the 1930s, appearing in a number of films such as Little Women (1949) and Scaramouche (1952). She gained prominence for her work in a number of films directed by Alfred Hitchcock, including The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) and Psycho (1960). She also appeared in films such as The Naked Spur (1953) and Touch of Evil (1958).

In 1960, Leigh starred in Psycho, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The film was a critical and commercial success, and Leigh’s performance as Marion Crane earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and an Academy Award nomination.

In 1964, Leigh married Robert Brandt. The couple had one son, Thomas Leigh Brandt.

Leigh continued to appear in film and television throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Some of her notable later roles include Airport 1975 (1974), The Fog (1980), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998), and Little Women (1994).

Quotes

#Quote
1[in 1953, on getting second billing to Tony Curtis in Houdini (1953)] I don't care if he's made one picture and I've made a hundred. I will always take second billing to my husband.
2[on Night of the Lepus (1972)] I've forgotten as much as I could about that picture.
3[on her Psycho (1960) co-star, the late Anthony Perkins] To me he was a leading man. But to the rest of the world, he'll always be "Norman Bates". People just wouldn't let him be anything else.
4[on working with Alfred Hitchcock] Hitch relished scaring me. When we were making Psycho (1960), he experimented with the mother's corpse, using me as his gauge. I would return from lunch, open the door to the dressing room and propped up in my chair would be this hideous monstrosity. The horror in my scream, registered on his Richter scale, decided which dummy he'd use as the Madame.
5I don't know what it is I exude. But whatever it is, it's whatever I am!
6Psycho (1960) gave me very wrinkled skin. I was in that shower for seven days - 70 setups. At least, he [Alfred Hitchcock] made sure the water was warm.
7[when asked if it was true that she doesn't take showers] It's actually, honestly true. And not because of the shooting of it. It was the seeing of it. It never dawned on me how truly vulnerable we are. But that's what [Alfred Hitchcock] did. A shower. A bird. All these things that are absolutely ordinary, he made extraordinary.

2Said on TCM that Van Johnson was responsible for her stage name. While they were filming The Romance of Rosy Ridge (1947), he suggested she shorten her first name to Janet. He also thought that, since the film they were doing was a civil war drama, Lee would go well as her last name. But then he suggested she spell it Leigh. She was concerned there might a problem in being confused with Vivien Leigh; but then Van Johnson reminded her of Van Heflin. He said "there's two Van's and it hasn't hurt either of us".
