Vertigo is one of the most beautiful and captivating movies by Alfred Hitchcock.
He is known to each and every one for his “Birds” and “Psycho” and “Vertigo” is probably a little underestimated.
The love of Hitchcocks to detective dramas, involving beautiful women was driven by his obsessions and fears.
Vertigo is about an ex-detective who is heavily traumatized by an accident at work and is fighting a fear of heights. He meets an old pal, who asks him for a favor – to follow his wife, who is acting weird. And of course, he falls in love.
One of the most beautiful women of her time – Kim Novak is playing the wife and the detective is portrayed by James Stewart. An exquisite detective/love story to watch.
