Interesting trivia about Vertigo...the critics at the time didn't...

like it much and even panned it.. Hitchcock apparently blamed Stewart and Novak for it saying Novak was too "wooden" and Stewart too old to play the part...LOL.. HE cast them for God sakes! Vera Miles had been slated to play Madeline / Judy but got pregnant before shooting began. Hitchcock was so disgusted with the reviews that he never worked with Stewart again in spite of their past few films together. Through the years though and in retrospect Vertigo has gained alot of respect and even sometimes has replaced Citizen Kane (I've NEVER though much of it) on film lists as the greatest film of all time! When I was a teenager in the late 60's, I saw Picnic for the very first time and fell in love with the beautiful Ms. Novak... Picnic, Vertigo and Pal Joey are 3 of my absolute favorite films! Unfortunately, she didn't age well and had some bad plastic surgery done through the years...That's funny about your wife... does she have blonde hair and look like Madeline / Novak?
