Going down? Acrophobic James Stewart nervously descends the tower in Vertigo.
In an interview with François 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 Sebastián International Film Festival awards for Best Director and Best Actor respectively. - Wikipedia
