Psycho Survivors

Recommended Posts

Watching the classic "Psycho" from 1960 (50th anniversary of it this year).

 

Just wondering how many of the lead actors are still living. Here is what I came up with:

Vera Miles - played Lila Crane (Marion's sister) still living age 79

John Gavin - played Sam Loomis (Marion's boyfriend) still living age 78 (I think).

 

Once these two are gone, that will be the end of 'em.

Patricia Hitchcock is 81. She played Caroline, Marion's co-worker (definitely not a leading part), but I believe she's the only other surviving cast member who at least received a screen credit.

Sounds like: When they die, they'll be dead!

Vera Miles actually turned 80 last August.

John Gavin is alive at 81 last April

Patricia is supposedly in really poor health (currently 85 yrs). I think she might die either this year or 2015.

So Vera might outlive them all. Or has?

I forgot she was in it. Easily done given small role.

In addition to Miles and Hitchcock, there's one very notable cast member still alive. 

Paul Jasmin (b. 1935), better known as an artist, provided the voice for Norman's "mother" in the film, but was uncredited despite the significance to the central plot.

I chose the wrong person from the cast of Psycho for my DDP. 

Although I do have a unique pick.with Patricia Hitchcock.
