I received a movie subscription for Christmas and the first one that I wanted to see was Vertigo. I love Rear Window and figured that Jimmy Stewart would be great in another Hitchcock film.
I was wrong. Kim Novak was beautiful in this movie but the way her character let men manipulate her was appalling. Barbara Bel Geddes was beautiful also and her character was interesting. Was she just smart to not have originally married Stewart though she pined for him later or was she (thankfully for her) too self absorbed?
Why was Stewart driving on the wrong side of the road near the end of the movie? It didn't make sense. The movie was supposed to be a love story, but it was flat. The characters did not pull at my heart strings and I found that I didn't care any more about them by the end of the movie than I did at the beginning.
