SCREENING

Vertigo

Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1958, 128 mins. 35mm. With James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes. Voted the greatest film of all time in the most recent Sight & Sound international critics poll., Hitchcock’s peerless psychological thriller follows a San Francisco private detective who comes out of retirement to trail an old schoolmate’s beautiful wife, who appears to be haunted by a figure from her ancestral past. Both an ingeniously plotted mystery and a profoundly disturbing tale of romantic obsession, Vertigo is an emotional experience like no other—an astonishment on the level of image, sound, and storytelling. This is a very rare screening of a vintage Technicolor print, with the film’s original soundtrack and color beautifully intact.
