Fascinating restoration and behind-the-scenes gossip...
21 January 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Chronicling the restoration of Alfred Hitchcock's masterwork "Vertigo", we get background information and amazing behind-the-scenes photographs and gossip about one of the greatest films ever made. I loved getting to see those rare pics of Hitch in San Francisco, and that original cover of the French novel "D'entre les Morts", upon which "Vertigo" is based, is stunning (try finding that in a pinch!). Roddy McDowall narrates in his inimitable, non show-offy way. The quick interviews with Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes and others are very enjoyable. Perfect for whetting the palate for a "Vertigo" viewing, so put them both on (this one first) for a stylish, informative evening.
