4K Digital Restoration
Released to lukewarm reviews and box office in 1958, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo has long since risen to the top of the film canon, culminating in its 2012 selection as the “greatest film of all time” in the authoritative Sight and Sound Critics’ Poll. Based on French novel D’entre les morts, Vertigo tells the story of Scottie Ferguson (James Stewart), a retired police detective with a crippling fear of heights. When his college buddy Gavin Elster contacts him with the fantastic tale of his possessed wife Madeleine (Kim Novak), Scottie reluctantly agrees to trail the beautiful young Mrs. Elster. Transforming thereafter into one of the cinema’s most iconic stories of romantic obsession, Vertigo is a masterpiece in every respect, from its encyclopedic approach to film style to its autobiographical connection to Hitchcock’s career to the numerous career-defining contributions of its collaborators (including Saul Bass’s evocative titles and Bernard Hermann’s spellbinding score). OKCMOA is very proud to present this all-time classic in its most recent 4K digital restoration.
