About the Author:

Jeanette Helen Morrison was thrust into the fantastic world of Hollywood when she was discovered by motion picture legend Norma Shearer at a ski lodge in northern California. Overwhelmed by the young woman's beauty, Shearer immediately contacted MGM studios, who sent for her, changed her name to Janet Leigh and signed her to a film contract. Before the ink was dry on her contract, she was shooting her debut film, The Romance of Rosy Ridge. She flourished instantly, and it was the beginning of a very successful career in film.

Leigh was born and raised in Merced, California. She studied music and psychology at the College of the Pacific, where she had her first experience performing in musicals. Most memorable among her more than fifty films, which include several musicals, are Bye Bye Birdie, Touch of Evil, My Sister Eileen and Little Women. Leigh also starred in such films as Holiday Affair, The Naked Spur and The Manchurian Candidate, opposite Frank Sinatra. She is most noted, however, for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic thriller, Psycho, which landed her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1960, as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance.
