128 minutes, color, 35mm | Directed by Alfred Hitchcock; Alfred Hitchcock’s hypnotic mystery has grown in acclaim in the 56 years since its original release, topping Sight & Sound’s 2012 poll of the greatest films ever made. James Stewart plays San Francisco cop, John "Scottie" Ferguson, who quits the force after a paralyzing attack of acrophobia costs another cop’s life. Ferguson is hired by an old friend to follow his unstable wife, whose obsession with a dead ancestor leads to a complicated web of love, betrayal, and heartbreak. Veteran Hitchcock collaborator Edith Head designed the costumes, including the dramatically different looks for the haunted Madeleine and the earthy Judy (a memorable double role for Kim Novak), and Bernard Herrmann’s grandly romantic score merged with Robert Burks’s evocative photography of the Northern California locations to create one of the Master of Suspense’s most unforgettable masterpieces.
