What the press had to say on this edgy new Hitchcock:
“[The] secret [of the film] is so clever, even though it is devilishly far-fetched.”
–New York Times
“Hitchcock has never made a thriller more stately and deliberate in technique”
-Sight and Sound
“Vertigo is prime though uneven Hitchcock… Stewart, on camera almost constantly throughout the film’s 126 minutes, comes through with a startlingly fine performance as the lawyer-cop who suffers from acrophobia—that is, vertigo or dizziness in high places.”
Happy Vertigo day everyone!
