Vertigo

Part of our Cinema Studies program

An ex-police officer (James Stewart) who suffers from an intense fear of heights is hired to prevent an old friend’s wife (Kim Novak) from committing suicide—but all is not as it seems. Alfred Hitchcock’s haunting, endlessly compelling masterpiece is uniquely revelatory about the director’s own predilections and hang-ups, and is widely considered to be one of his masterworks.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo will be accompanied by a lecture from Dr. Tanya Goldman, NYU Tisch School of the Arts Cinema Studies PhD graduate.

"Alfred Hitchcock tops his own fabulous record for suspense with Vertigo, a super-tale of murder, madness and mysticism that stars James Stewart and Kim Novak."
Jack Moffitt, The Hollywood Reporter
