What was the first American film to feature a toilet flushing?
The 1960 movie “Pyscho” is the first American film where a toilet is shown being flushed. Screenwriter Joseph Stefano was hell-bent on having the movie feature a flushing toilet in order to accentuate the film's sense of realism, despite the fact that no major American film had ever done so before. Hitchcock supported the peculiar idea, on the condition that Stefano made it an organic part of the movie's story. The scene was an issue with censors, but ultimately made the cut. The end result proved shocking to audiences of the period, who were completely unaccustomed to seeing a toilet flush on the big screen.
