Janet Leigh is horror royalty and Hollywood icon, who took the most famous on screen shower in the history of film long before paying homage to her Psycho role in another classic scene with her scream queen daughter Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween: Twenty Years Later, and she is also the bewitching subject of a number of vintage Halloween-themed pinup photos from 1950s.
Leigh and most of the top starlets of the golden years of Hollywood would routinely pose for somewhat risque pinup photos over the years, and many donned a witches hat and used jack o lantern props alongside black cats to create some of the most memorable and nostalgic black and white images capturing vintage Halloween at its best.
We have gathered a few of these great Halloween pinup shots featuring a young Janet Leigh, who would later star in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho and John Carpenter’s The Fog, among so many others.
