Vertigo appears on countless lists with titles like “Best Films Ever Made.” Almost everything about it has become iconic—the famous bell tower scene, the skin-prickling score, the innovative special effects, and even the famous spiral poster.

Join us as we dissect what makes this film so bewitching, dizzyingly powerful, and a mainstay of great cinema.
