Although Vertigo was not a box-office hit at the time of its release, it has since come to be regarded as one of the greatest films ever made. A mesmerizing suspense/thriller about a macabre, doomed romance – a desperate love for an illusion – Vertigo follows a troubled man's obsessive search for an elusive ideal. John “Scottie” Ferguson is a retired police detective with crippling acrophobia. When he’s asked by a shipbuilding tycoon friend to follow his wife, whom he fears is suicidal, Scottie is drawn into a strange and circuitous plot. Based upon the 1954 mystery novel D'entre les morts by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac, it is a film noir that unfurls into a masterful study of romantic longing, identity, voyeurism, treachery and death, female victimization and manipulation, fatal sexual obsession and the feminine "ideal."
