DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK
CAST: JAMES STEWART, KIM NOVAK, BARBARA BEL GEDDES, TOM HELMORE
Dress up becomes a matter of fevered fixation in Hitchcock’s intoxicating thriller, named in Sight & Sound’s 2012 international critics poll as the greatest movie ever made. Edith Head, the most important costume designer in Hollywood history, dresses Kim Novak in dove gray and enchanting emerald. “To be a good designer in Hollywood,” said Head, “one has to be a combination of psychiatrist, artist, fashion designer, dress-maker, pin cushion, historian, nurse maid and purchasing agent, too.”
Screening on an IB Technicolor print.
