This Week\'s Movie Revival
Vertigo/The Wrong Man(1958/ 1957) Alfred Hitchcock\'s emotionally powerful story of a man\'s last love affair before the grave. Jimmy Stewart plays a retired San Francisco police detective hooked by a married woman who is apparently haunted by a dead ancestor. As the deadly imago, Kim Novak leads a vertigo-struck Stewart to more and more dizzying heights. It was a misunderstood film in its time, because the implications were a little too unpleasant for a 1950s audience to face, and the ending is probably the most bleak in all of Code-era American cinema. Stewart, most certainly not a nice guy here, is demanding and duplicitous. And he was never better, never so much at cross purposes with that sometimes tiresomely folksy exterior. Bernard Herrmann\'s symphonic soundtrack stays with you for life. BILLED WITH The Wrong Man. Hitchcock\'s snatched-off-the-pavements true-life story of a jazz musician (Henry Fonda) mistaken for a murderer. Vera Miles co-stars. (Plays Mar 14-17 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB)
