Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Hitchcock's Vertigo

This is an Archive of a Past Event

ALFRED HITCHCOCK’s Vertigo was first released in theaters in 1958. To mark the film’s fiftieth anniversary, the Stanford Humanities Center and the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages have organized an informal celebration of the film’s importance—for film lovers, philosophers, and the culture at large. This event is not just a scholarly discussion of Hitchcock’s masterpiece, but also a chance for enthusiasts to comment on the impact the film has had on their own lives. Stanford is an especially appropriate venue for this discussion, given the vital significance of the Bay Area landscape to the film’s effect.
