Adapted from the French novel D’entre les Morts and with a typically incisive score by Bernard Herrmann, Vertigo was voted the best film ever made in the most recent Sight & Sound poll. Stewart is the vertiginous detective asked to follow a millionaire’s wife (apparently possessed), but who then allows his obsessive desire to lead him to the top of a church tower . . .
Includes a brief introduction by Hollywood-raised film historian Karol Kulik.
