I don't have that reference, but I recalled reading about Saul Bass in Janet
Leigh's 1995 book, _Psycho: Behind the Scenes of the Classic Thriller_. Leigh
castigates Bass for claiming he directed the shower scene (he apparently
storyboarded it). As part of her case she quotes cinematographer Hilton Green:
"There is not a shot in that movie that I didn't roll the camera for. And I
can tell you I never rolled the camera for Mr. Bass" (p. 69).
Does anyone have information about when and why Bass was making the directing
