Starring James Stewart and Kim Novak, this Hitchcock classic (released in 1958) follows a detective forced to retire after his fear of heights causes the death of a fellow officer and the girl he was hired to pursue. This leads into a cycle of madness and lies, resulting in a definitive Hitchcock work of obsession, manipulation and fear.
