Crime, Drama, Thriller




Retired detective Scottie Ferguson, who quit the force after developing a fear of heights, thinks he's pursuing a regular lead when he is hired to follow Madeline, the beautiful wife of a friend. As he begins to fall in love with her, his whole world is shattered when his vertigo prevents him from saving her from an apparent suicide. Devastated, Scottie begins to shut himself off entirely but when he later glimpses Madeline's perfect double in the sun-soaked San Francisco streets, his feelings of obsession and paranoia begin to spiral out of control. This tense thriller from director Alfred Hitchcock - often spoken of as one of the greatest films of all time - is a fascinating marriage of psychology and cinema.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
