Anthony Perkins, Psycho (1960).

Psycho on Bluray today!
Extras include:
The Making of ‘Psycho’ (SD; 1:34:12) is an incredibly excellent feature length documentary on virtually every aspect of the film’s production; 
'Psycho' Sound (HD; 9:58) is an interesting look at the  new technologies employed to isolate discrete elements of a mono sound  stem to create a 5.1 experience; 
In the Master’s Shadow:  Hitchcock’s Legacy (SD; 25:58)  offers some interesting comparisons of Hitchcock sequences with those in  other films, and includes a wealth of interviews with directors like  Martin Scorsese and John Carpenter who have been influenced by Hitch; 
Hitchcock/Truffaut (Audio; 15:20), an interesting Psycho-centric snippet from their 1962 interview sessions; 
Newsreel Footage:  The Release of ‘Psycho’ (SD; 7:45) is  somewhat misleadingly titled, as this is really a “pressbook on film”  for exhibitors, describing the “no admittance after the film starts”  policy that made Psycho's original roadshow exhibition such a sensation; 
The Shower Scene (SD; 2:30), offers the iconic sequence with and without Herrmann’s riveting score; 
The Shower Scene:  Storyboards by Saul Bass (SD; 4:10), an interesting compendium of Bass sketches which helped Hitchcock to plan his setups for the sequence; 
'Psycho' Archives (SD; 7:48), a collection of publicity still; 
Posters and ‘Psycho’ Ads (SD; 3:00), including some international versions; 
Lobby Cards (SD; 1:30)
