This Hitchcock mystery-thriller starts off really strong with a tense opening scene and the dazzling credit sequence by Saul Bass. And what should I say? The rest of the film is pretty great as well.
Hitchcok sows enough seeds early on, to bloom over the duration of this film. His cast (James Stewart, Kim Novak & Barbara Bel Geddes) brings the characters to life in a really amazing way and the suspenseful and oftentimes tragic story is just something to adore.
But nevertheless, there are a few pacing issues towards the middle or maybe it's just not the best method to approach more than one "Best Movie" a day. So I reserve myself ½ star for the second viewing of this Hitchcock delight.
There is no way that Barbara Bel Geddes' character Midge in this film did NOT inspire the character of Barb in "Stanger Things".
