Janet Leigh's Psycho (1960) performance -- shower scene and all -- was her most memorable screen moment, but the young actress appeared in dozens more films, including Touch Of Evil (1958), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), and Bye Bye Birdie (1963). Leigh's personal life also made her the subject of press coverage and public fascination -- she was married to actor Tony Curtis for over a decade, and one of their daughters is the actress Jamie Lee Curtis.
