SCREENING

Vertigo

Ongoing

Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1958, 128 mins. 35mm IB Technicolor print. With James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes. Considered by many cinephiles the greatest of all films, 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—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.
