Alfred hitchcock analysis

I remember another scene, at the beginning, when Stewart hauled Kim Novak out of the water. Those scenes in which James Stewart takes Judy to the dress shop to buy a suit just like the one Madeleine wore, and the way in which he makes her tryon shoes, are among the best.

Temporarily dazed by the vision of his beloved Madeleine come back from the dead, Stewart comes to his senses when he spots the locket. So when the girl emerges from the bathroom, that green light gives her the same subtle, ghostlike quality. All of the visual choices that Hitchcock makes contribute to the overall reading and effect of the film. The suspicion and animosity that Marion feels while at the motel is felt by the audience. In the screenplay we used a different approach. I can assure you that those who admire Vertigo like Kim Novak in it. But now we give the public the truth about the hoax so that our suspense will hinge around the question of how Stewart is going to react when he discovers that Judy and Madeleine are actually the same person. At the very least, I want to involve myself with film.

I always remember one night at the Chelsea Arts Ball at Albert Hall in London when I got terribly drunk and I had the sensation that everything was going far away from me. Very few American actresses are quite as carnal on the screen.

Kim Novak stars as the object of his obsession and longing, a mysterious blonde who seems ice-cold at the first glance, but a complex woman who magnificently display a wide range of emotionssuch as fear, love and child-like vulnerability.

I also explained that the story was of less importance to me than the overall visual impact on the screen, once the picture is completed.

In Hitchcock worked with legendary actor Jimmy Stewart for the fourth and final time, and just like Rear Windowthey succeeded in making a film that would enter the history books.

He is a common topic to turn to when discussing auteur directors, film history, suspense, and psychoanalysis. In his biography of Rossini, Stendhal makes clear that, in the early nineteenth century, opera spectators were in the habit of wandering noisily in and out of the theatre while the production was going on.
