About the Movie

Considered by many to be director Alfred Hitchcock's greatest achievement, Leonard Maltin gives Vertigo four stars, hailing it as "A genuinely great motion picture." Set among San Francisco's renown landmarks, James Stewart is brilliant as Scottie Ferguson, an acrophobic detective hired to shadow a friend's suicidal wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). After he saves her from drowning in the bay, Scottie's interest shifts from business to fascination with the icy, alluring blonde. When he finds another woman remarkably like his lost love, the now obsessed detective must unravel the secrets of the past to find the key to his future.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The lure of death, the power of the past, the guilty complicity of a clean-cut hero, the near-fetishistic use of symbol and color: these Hitchcock hallmarks are all mesmerizingly on view. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, May 23, 2014

Fresh: There! No more hints! Coming or not? What more's to say? Well, nothing, except that Vertigo is performed in the manner expected of all performers in Hitchcock films. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, May 23, 2014

Fresh: You watch this guy going slowly over the brink and realize, good grief, this is Jimmy Stewart. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: James Stewart, on camera almost constantly, comes through with a startlingly fine performance as the lawyer-cop who suffers from acrophobia. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 23, 2014

Fantastic Movie!!!!

One of Hitchcocks greatest!!! iTunes finally got more movies!

Fantastic!

Hitchcock's finest achievement (and thats saying something!) James Stewart gives one of the most moving performances ever given on film, Hitch gives the viewer a look into the madness of Stewart's character, as he goes through one of the most powerful changes ever seen in a movie. This is still a powerful and spectacular movie that should be seen by everyone!

Great movie, BUT...

WHY IS ITUNES USING THIS RIDICULOUS NEW COVER ART INSTEAD OF THE AMAZING SAUL BASS POSTER FROM THE DVD???? Sorry iTunes graphics department, you're no Saul Bass.
