Hitchcocktoberfest suffers from VERTIGO tonight at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater

Vertigo PosterJoin the CALS Ron Robinson Theater for HITCHCOCKTOBERFEST! They will be screening FIVE classic Hitchcock films throughout October, and continue the series off tonight (October 17) with Vertigo

The screening starts at 7pm.

The 1958 film is the third collaboration between Alfred Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart. It also featured Kim Novak (another in the long line of cool, attractive blondes which Hitchcock cast in his movies), Tom Helmore, Barbara Bel Geddes, Henry Jones, and Ellen Corby.

John “Scottie” Ferguson is a former police detective forced into early retirement because an incident in the line of duty caused him to develop acrophobia and vertigo. His fears are confronted when Scottie is hired by an acquaintance, Gavin Elster, as a private investigator to follow Gavin’s wife Madeleine, who is behaving strangely.

The movie was nominated for two Oscars: Best Sound and Best Art Direction.
