      Anthony Perkins

      Anthony Perkins

      Highest Rated: 100% Pretty Poison (1968)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Phaedra (1962)

      Birthday: Apr 4, 1932

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      One of the most intriguing leading men of the 1950s, Anthony Perkins' career path changed significantly after he was cast in a thriller from suspense master Alfred Hitchcock. Prior to that time, the handsome, boyish actor had earned critical praise for his work in "Friendly Persuasion" (1956) and "Fear Strikes Out" (1957), and was regarded as a fine candidate for romantic lead parts. However, that quickly changed after he portrayed murderous mama's boy Norman Bates in Hitchcock's hugely successful thriller, "Psycho" (1960). Perkins was so effective that for many viewers and producers, the role came to define him. A sojourn in Europe helped Perkins earn other sorts of assignments. He also gave a wonderful return performance as Norman in "Psycho II" (1983), and that unexpectedly effective film helped to revive public interest in him. A masterful character actor, Perkins' ability to convey mental instability in a fashion that was simultaneously disturbing, affecting, and darkly humorous made him a unique and valuable talent.
