* BookEnds: The film starts and ends with Hitchcock speaking directly to the audience about a production he will soon start on.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Hitchcock will occasionally speak directly to the audience as he was known to do in real life. The Book Ends are the most direct example.

** A reference to Janet Leigh's work before ''Psycho'' is made when Vera Miles warns her of Hitchcock's tendencies and Leigh brushes it off with a "Still better than working for Welles." Leigh had previously worked for Creator/OrsonWelles in his film ''Film/TouchOfEvil''.



* TransparentCloset: InUniverse, Anthony Perkins is relatively commonly known to be homosexual. In RealLife this claim is a... more contentious subject.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: An InUniverse example: Hitch turns down Creator/IanFleming's ''Literature/CasinoRoyale''. He could have been the first director of the ''Film/JamesBond'' series.

** Vera Miles is shown with short hair, and has to wear a blonde wig on set. She had shaved her head for ''Film/FiveBrandedWomen'', which is why she had to wear a wig in ''Psycho''.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Alfred Hitchcock puts the decayed corpse prop used as Mrs. Bates in Janet Leigh's room. Janet screamed and ran out of her room, demanding an explanation from Hitchcock, who says, "What? Mrs. Bates asked if she could take a nap in your room. I told her that would be fine." Despite the fact that Janet still looked rather mad, we see her grin a little and roll her eyes before she walks off, suggesting this trope.

* EnforcedMethodActing: In-universe; Hitchcock torments Janet Leigh with increasingly explicit sexual fantasies while she's filming the car scene.

** The trailer makes it seem as though Alma suggests killing off Janet Leigh's character midway through the film as a grudge against Leigh herself. Not only is that not the case, but also Alma carefully compliments Leigh at the end on her "professional" behavior--that is, on her ability to resist Hitchcock's attempts to seduce her.

* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Alma Hitchcock in real life was very matronly and ordinary, very unlike the shapely and stunning Creator/HelenMirren, and Hitch himself was far more wrinkly and flabby around the jowline than AnthonyHopkins in the fatsuit.

* KickTheDog: Hitch spitefully calling Alma's personal project "stillborn" is a moment of quite surprising cruelty, considering he understands better than most how much emotional energy creators invest in their works. After she calls him out for it and he has cooled down enough to think it over, he is genuinely remorseful and sincerely apologises for it.
