Director: Alfred Hitchcock
James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes, Tom Helmore, Henry Jones
We close with Hitchcock’s probable masterpiece and, now according to many, probably the greatest film of all time. We’ve shown it before and make no apologies for revisiting this timeless psychological thriller, brilliantly handled by Hitchcock and his stalwart, James Stewart. Novak, too, is perfect as the doomed dopple-ganger and then there’s the psychotic / psychedelic dream sequences and Bernard Herrmann’s score. All-in-all, it’s hard to think of another film that is as compelling and original as this – not bad for a sixty year-old.
