ABOUT THE FILM:

The 1958 psychological thriller VERTIGO has appeared repeatedly in polls of the best films of all time by the American Film Institute. It received mixed reviews at the time of its release, but was later heralded as one of director Alfred Hitchcock's finest films. Adapted from a French novel, the story weaves an intricate web of obsession and deceit. Jimmy Stewart stars as Scottie Ferguson, a retired San Francisco police detective, who is approached by an acquaintance from college days who asks him to follow his beautiful wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak), claiming that she is in some sort of danger. Scottie is skeptical, but agrees to the assignment after he sees the beautiful Madeleine.
