Vertigo... Countdown to Halloween!


Vertigo is the feeling that you or your environment is moving or spinning. It differs from dizziness in that vertigo describes an illusion of movement. When you feel as if you yourself are moving, it's called subjective vertigo, and the perception that your surroundings are moving is called objective vertigo.  Unlike nonspecific lightheadedness or dizziness, vertigo has relatively few causes.

Vertigo is a 1958 psychological thriller film directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock. The story was based on the 1954 novel D'entre les morts by Boileau-Narcejac. The screenplay was written by Alec Coppel and Samuel A. Taylor.

The film stars James Stewart as former police detective John "Scottie" Ferguson. Scottie is forced into early retirement because an incident in the line of duty has caused him to develop acrophobia (an extreme fear of heights) and vertigo (a sensation of false, rotational, movement). Scottie is hired by an acquaintance, Gavin Elster, as a private investigator to follow Gavin's wife Madeleine (Kim Novak), who is behaving strangely. 
 
So how are you doing, do you suffer from sort of medical condition... what makes you jump or shake?

  1. No vertigo for me.
    The eye twitching is making my eyes water.

  2. Quite possibly my favorite movie of all time. With any other actor, Scottie would seem like a creepy perv, but Jimmy Stewart is just such a decent seeming guy, that he makes the character sympathetic.

  3. Closest I ever came was severe room spins once, but that was easily explained by an evening of drinking. (Which is why I can count on one hand the number of times I've been drunk in my life - not worth it!)

  4. Vertigo is one of Hitchcock's best movies. Better than Psycho, but not as good as Rear Window.

  6. Thankfully, I don't suffer from vertigo, but I do have this annoying habit of being unable to focus when I get overwhelmed and stressed by too much going on. I handle it though, and otherwise things are awesome!

  7. What a classic film. I read a radio interview with a woman who suffered from Vertigo 24/7 for months. It's a rough condition.

  8. I remember the film. I have epilepsy that makes me shake sometimes, it is under control so I just live with it,

  9. Vertigo would be gruesome to have continuously. The soundtrack to this movie was beautiful. The ending was stunning. And even though James Stewart played :Scottie", I felt antsy about his character's actions. One of Hitchcock's best. Oh, by the way, his ghost shows up at Meilori's today ... with the ghost of Jack the Ripper. :-)

  10. Love all the Hitchcock films, but 'Rear Window' is up there amongst my favs. As for suffering vertigo? Once or twice, but only if looking up.

  11. Classic, for sure, but not my favorite from Hitchcock.

  12. I love this movie! I should watch it again for Halloween- that or one of his others. Hitchcock is great.

  13. One of my favourite Hitchcock films, although Jimmy Stewart's character is a bit of a jerk. I, too, have a fear of high places (from which I could potentially fall to my death) , but not to this extent.
