Vertigo (Restored Version)*

  • 1958 ----- color ----- 128 min ----- laserdisc
  • (Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, screenplay by Alec Coppel, Samuel Taylor based on the novel D'Entre les Morts by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac; with James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes, Tom Helmore) Alfred Hitchcock's intensely personal, self-revealing picture which is the story of a man who is possessed by the image of a lost love and becomes increasingly compulsive in his desire to re-create that image. Received reservedly by critics in the year of its release, the film is now generally recognized as one the Hitchcock's greatest films, considered by many to be a genuinely great motion picture that demands multiple viewings.
