    I'm not generally a Jimmy Stewart fan, but this is my favorite film of his, and of Hitchcock's. From the opening titles (by the ever-amazing Saul Bass) to the final scene, the film is flawless. Taut, precise, expertly filmed, beautifully framed, suspenseful, compelling, dark. It's everything you could want from Hitchcock, and Jimmy Stewart (finally) shows his dark side.

    One of the first capitol-D Directors, Hitchcock seriously shows his stuff in this masterpiece. The plot is sort of beside the point - a traumatized police officer is afraid of heights, is hired to trail a wife, "falls for her" - but the opportunities for the Hitch to play with all kinds of new technological gizmoes and expertly shoot Kim Novak all around San Francisco are key.
