About the Movie
The premiere Salmagundi library movie night is a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 masterpiece, ‘Vertigo’. Starring James Stewart as a detective afflicted with a fatal fear of heights and Kim Novak as an alluring and haunted woman who holds the secret to a terrifying mystery. Filmed on location in San Francisco in sumptuous technicolor and scored by the great Bernard Hermann, Hitchcock employs a rich palette of vivid color to create a visual experience that has been universally hailed as one of the greatest American films of all time. Amateur sleuths take note- the roller coaster script leads to a shocking twist ending that only the most eagle eyed might see coming before the big reveal.

There will be free popcorn and a cash bar with food for sale. Each evening will feature a film introduction by Michael Fetherston.
