Somebody Make A Movie Out Of This

It's got everything! Murder! Mayhem! Mistaken Identities! Arguably the most famous movie scene in history! Robert Graysmith, the man who wrote Zodiac, released a book last month called The Girl in Alfred Hitchcock's Shower that tells the tale of Marli Renfo, a stripper who was Janet Leigh's body double in the infamous shower scene in Psycho, who would become hunted by a Hitchcock-obsessed maniac twenty-plus years later.

You can read an overview of the story over here, and here's a link to the book at Amazon. Must read this! I'd never heard about this story before. This would be a fascinating way to make a movie out of the making of Psycho, though.

This is a great idea for a movie. I had heard a little of the story but am really interested in reading the book now.
Thanks for the recommendation.
