MPAA Rating:Technically none.  However, remastered version contains PG

Nate’s good sense rating:PG (some disturbing images..remember this movie was made in 1958)


Retired detective who has a bad case of acrophobia is talked into following an old College buddy’s wife who is acting strangely.  He falls in love and becomes almost obsessed with her.  There is much more to the story than this, but to say anymore would give plot points away.


To say that Alfred Hitchcock was a genius is to understate his talents as a director.  This movie is first rate with twists and turns at every moment in the film.  The film is full of motifs and images that add to the plot.  It is obvious to see why this film is used in many film courses.  I must say, Jimmy Stewart can play a man who is on the fringe of becoming completely insane quite well.
