This is something that I have been trying to perhaps <<decode>> from PSYCHO
since I was about 8 years old when I first saw the movie. The license plate
on Crane's car reads: NFB 351. The camera hold onto this image for
a long period of time. The oly thing that I could get from it was that <<N>>
and <<B>> Stand for Norman and Bates and that the <<F>> could stand for a
middle initial, but I am unsure whether his middle name was used in the four
PSYCHO movies and in the prequel(?) <<The Bates Motel>>. Also, does anyone
know where I can obtain a copy of <<The Bates Motel>>? I know that it
wasn't welknown and a relative of mine once had a copy of it. I think I may
have seen it on <<USA>> or the <<USA:Up All Night>> series. I do remember
seeing it on TV though. That's the only thing I can remember.
