I've loved Alfred Hitchcock's body of work nearly without exception since I first became aware of it. As an American I'm interested in what English members think (as well as all members) of his contribution to film. Without hesitation Vertigo touches a place very deep inside me. It's my favorite Hitchcock film. Some say Rear Window is the height of voyeurism. I say Vertigo supercedes it in that quality. This scene speaks to the "other worldliness" of that entire film. At the very end see how Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak) appears to float out of the scene.
