Movie starts at Dusk
The debate rages as to the true “noir-ness” of Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological thriller, especially since it was shot and shown in color. But certainly in terms of its characters and subject matter, it qualifies as noir. A retired San Francisco detective, “Scottie” Ferguson (Jimmy Stewart), becomes obsessed with the woman he’s been hired to investigate (Kim Novak).
Vertigo is not only Hitchcock’s most colorful film; arguably, it’s his most creative one as well. From its use of set pieces, costuming, camera work and, as always, a terrific Bernard Herrman score, the film is an inarguable masterpiece. Along with Psycho and North by Northwest, it’s one of Hitchcock’s most fondly remembered features.
