Another masterpiece from a director at the height of his powers, also
highlighting the considerable virtuosity of the late Jimmy Stewart. And
don't forget Kim Novak, a very talented actress who plays a dual role
most intriguingly, and looks wonderful doing it. Her cool beauty in
this film was part of her brilliance as an actress, and those who say
she sleepwalked through the film have not been paying attention.
Stunningly beautiful to look at, this film also has a brilliant Bernard
Herrmann score (although I think the restorers of the film may have
cranked the volume up a little too high). I've seen this film on the
big screen 3 times in the last year or so, and it rewards every viewing.
