With its hypnotic visuals and palpably wistful characters, director Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological suspense masterpiece continues to entrance audiences. Retired San Francisco police detective “Scottie” Ferguson (James Stewart) becomes obsessed with Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak), a troubled woman he is privately hired to follow. Before he can remotely understand Madeleine’s neurosis, tragedy strikes. Scottie’s obsession with the glacial blonde spirals out of control (literally, thanks to the retina-like coil designs of graphics great Saul Bass), and reaches a fever pitch when he stumbles upon Judy Barton (also played by Novak), a young woman who bears a striking resemblance to Madeleine. With Barbara Bel Geddes as Scottie’s hopelessly overlooked admirer, Midge.
Presented in a 1984 non-restored 35mm. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 1958. Universal. USA. 128 min.
