Watch: 30-Minute Documentary 'Obsessed With Vertigo' About The Making & Restoration Of Alfred Hitchcock's Masterpiece

Last year, a bit of a cinematic dust-up occurred when Sight & Sound released their once-a-decade list of Greatest Movies Of All Time. Orson Welles‘ “Citizen Kane” had long dominated the top tier, but 2012 saw the film drop to the second slot, to be replaced by Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Vertigo” as the best movie ever. Of course, such rankings are a bit silly, but that didn’t stop film fans from discussing the merits of both, but we think it’s safe to say—they’re both great. But if you need a little more to convince you just how much Hitchcock’s film needs to be treasured, you might want to take a look below.

The 30-minute documentary “Obsessed With Vertigo” has landed online and it’s well worth a spin. The American Movie Classics production brings together a bunch of folks—Barbara Bel Geddes, Henry Bumstead, Robert A. Harris, Patricia Hitchcock, James C. Katz, Kim Novak, Peggy Robertson and Martin Scorsese—to talk both about the making of “Vertigo” and its restoration in the late 1990s (the doc is from 1997). Needless to say, it’s worth a watch whether you’re new to the film or have seen it more than once. Check it out below. [Behind The Scenes]
