A San Francisco police detective, John "Scottie" Ferguson, leaves the force after seeing a fellow policeman fall to his death during a rooftop chase. Ferguson suffers from vertigo, an extreme anxiety associated with heights. He confides in his ex-fiancee Midge, and is hired for a detective job by Gavin Elster, a former schoolmate. Elster wants Scottie to follow his wife Madeleine, who he fears is suicidal. As Scottie tails Madeleine, and saves her from a suicide attempt in the bay, he falls in love with her. But Scottie is unable to stop her next attempt as she climbs the bell tower of an old Spanish mission and jumps off the top. Devastated, Scottie withdraws from life temporarily but is jolted back to reality by his encounter with Judy, a shopgirl who bears an uncanny resemblance to the dead Madeleine. In his relentless pursuit of her, his fascination turns to obsession.

Produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock and staring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak, this film is the most studied and discussed film of Hitchcock’s career. It has been re-released twice and has been voted the 2nd greatest film ever made (after Citizen Kane, 1941) in a Sight and Sound survey of international film critics.
