Film Description

Hitchcock's most richly complex, profound and critically admired masterpiece, Vertigo is a wonderfully mysterious and dream-like study of obsession, phobia, sexual desire and identity. Blessed with memorable photography, San Francisco locations and Bernard Herrmann's music, it rewards countless viewings.

After his fear of heights indirectly causes the death of a colleague, San Francisco cop Scottie (James Stewart) retires. He is subsequently hired by magnate Gavin Elster to follow his wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak), as Elster says he fears for her life. Scottie becomes bewitched by Madeleine, falling in love with her after saving her from a suicide attempt. Then, when Scottie's vertigo prevents him saving Madeleine from a second attempt to kill herself, he becomes obsessed with recreating the dead woman's image.
