A movie about the movies, an actor's showcase and a look at one of the most iconic horror films of all time, "Hitchcock" is both about the making of "Psycho" and Alfred Hitchcock's relationship with his wife Alma Reville. But as you'll see in this clip, it wasn't always easy.

Known for his wandering eye, Hitch often got attached to his leading ladies, and no surprise that the curvacious Janet Leigh also earned his attention. In this scene from the film, we see the pair at dinner, along with Alma, as Hitchock answers the actress' questions about how the infamous shower scene will be shot and cut. And clearly, Alma isn't enjoying Hitch's hardly veiled infatuation with his star. It's a pretty sharp moment in the movie that sets up further friction to come, but underlines how good both Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are in the pic (and yes, Scarlett Johansson is solid too).

"Hitchcock" opens on November 23rd.
