I saw this movie again a couple of days ago and was reminded about the pure genius of legendary Alfred Hitchcock. I think this is his best movie, although there are many to chose from. Kim Novak is just drop dead gorgeous in this which is just an added bonus.
Hitchcock's thrilling masterpiece which casts Jimmie Stewart as a weary detective with a fear of heights who falls for, and becomes obsessed with, the beautiful woman (Kim Novak) he is hired to tail. San Francisco is the mistress in this tale providing an ever-changing backdrop for the twists and turns of this dark romantic thriller. While not a classic "romance," this film will appeal to those interested in thrillers, vintage apparel, and folks who don't need a (*spoiler alert*) "happily-ever-after" ending.
