Duration: 2 hours, 8 minutes

An ex-police officer, who suffers from an intense fear of heights, is hired to prevent an old friend's wife from committing suicide. But all is not what it seems. Hitchcock's haunting, compelling masterpiece is uniquely revelatory about the director's own predilections and hang-ups, and is widely considered to be one of his masterworks.
