    Brilliantly cynical look at human obsession, guilt and manipulation with Jimmy Stewart startling, playing-against-type, as a San Francisco detective forced to retire after his fear of heights causes the death of a mysterious woman he had been hired to follow; Kim Novak is ravishing as said lady whom he falls for and who sends him on a powerful psychological journey.
    The film takes you into a haunting, dream-like world of death, madness and deception that’s completely compelling; Bernard Herrmann provides a riveting score; the beautiful San Francisco settings are shot by Robert Burks. One of Hitchcock’s greatest films.
