friendly reminder for the Film Society’s screening of Vertigo this evening

fellow film fanatics

This evening the Pasadena Film Society begins it seventh screening series with Alfred Hitchcock’s
1958 classic "Vertigo". This is a film Ebert believed was among Hitchcock’s best, see his review HERE. Starring James Stewart and Kim Novak, the film is on the surface a gripping suspense of the classic ‘private detective’ genre.

But, as the story unfolds we see how one (ie., James Stewart) emotionally without a sure grip is susceptible to a "manipulation of belief". (See the analysis HERE .)
This film is overflowing with metaphors, a rich feast for discussion. In particular, which color occurs in almost every scene and what was Hitchcock’s intention in this display?

As with previous seasons, the screening time is 7 pm Friday (tonight) located at the Fairmont branch of the Pasadena Library. (Phone reservations at 832-598-4191 will guarentee you a seat.) So please join us for this psycologically twisty film, followed by snacks and discussion, all for free.
