THE FILMS SO FAR

 

Going down? Acrophobic James Stewart nervously descends the tower in Vertigo.

In an interview with Fran├žois Truffaut, Alfred Hitchcock said that Vertigo was one of his favourite films. Hitchcock blamed the film's initial failure on James Stewart, looking too old at 50 to play a convincing love interest for Kim Novak, who at 25 was half his age. Later, Hitchcock and Stewart received the San Sebasti├ín International Film Festival awards for Best Director and Best Actor respectively. - Wikipedia
