$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre
Scottie Ferguson (James Stewart) , a retired San Francisco police detective suffering from an extreme fear of heights, is hired by an old college friend to shadow his wife Madeleine (Kim Novak), who is experiencing a sort of spiritual possession and who might be suicidal.
Jimmy Stewart delivers one of his best and certainly his darkest performances and Kim Novak is effectively chilly and elusive as a mysteriously haunted woman on the brink of madness. This moody, complex, and hypnotic film is one of director Alfred Hitchcock’s finest works.
