Biographical Notes in German: Wie kein anderer verstand sich der sensible Schauspieler - er verlor im Alter von 60 Jahren am 12. September 1992 den jahrelangen Kampf gegen seine AIDS-Erkrankung - darauf, die Qualen einer psychopathischen Persönlichkeit darzustellen. Mit einer solchen Rolle war er 1960 über Nacht zum Weltstar geworden: mit dem geistesgestörten Mörder in Hitchcocks 'Psycho'. Der Ruhm wurde fast zum Fluch, denn Perkins blieb bis auf einige Ausnahmen auf diesen Rollentyp festgelegt. 'Normans Schatten lag von nun an über allen seinen nervösen und verletzlichen Figuren: dem Geliebten von Ingrid Bergman in 'Lieben Sie Brahms?', dem Millionenerben in Chabrols 'Der Champagnermörder', dem verunsicherten Ehemann in 'Du wirst noch an mich denken' oder (...) dem Josef K. in der Kafka-Verfilmung 'Der Prozess' von Orson Welles' (Fritz Göttler).

Zwei späte direkte Nachkommen von 'Psycho' folgten 1982 mit 'Psycho II' und 1985 mit 'Psycho III', den er auch selbst inszenierte. Dazu sagte er in einem Interview: 'Norman wird mich immer faszinieren. Er ist so unglücklich in seinem Ausgeliefertsein an das Böse. Er kann uns schockieren, und das finde ich so wichtig, so aktuell ... Wir sollten darüber nachdenken, was wir mit unseren eigenen Seelen anfangen, was wir mit Verdrängung verursachen.' (Walter Greifenstein, BR-Presse)
