Vertigo (1958)

USA 128m, Colour
Director: Alfred Hitchcock; Cast: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes

vertigoVertigo is arguably one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best and most memorable films. Hitchcock puts his star, James Stewart, in one of his favorite roles, as an “Everyman” who is forced to deal with extraordinary circumstances beyond his control. In Vertigo, Stewart’s character is challenged with murder, love, and an uncontrollable fear of heights which all but paralyzes his life. Veritgo is a brilliant story of suspense and murder in which Hitchcock furthers the development of story-telling through the medium of film in a style that remains original and highly entertaining (Klaus Ming June 2009).
