FBI director J Edgar Hoover personally told director Sam Fuller how much he hated his films, especially this one, in which pickpocket Richard Widmark exhibits no particular patriotism while dealing with vicious Communist spies. Nevertheless his brutal noir classic has survived to become one of the director's most revered films. Fox contractee Thelma Ritter was nominated as best supporting actress for the role of a lifetime, which she should have won.

my friends were surprised that when we were talking about the movie, i told them that 4 people in the Robocop cast. Peter Weller and Ray Wise(S5) Paul McCrane(S6) and Kurtwood Smith(S7) all wound up of seasons of 24'
Wow, this Okko guy really needs to get a life. Such hurtful words...
. I don't watch Vertigo like any other movie...
Saw Vertigo for the first time when it was reissued in the '80s, as part of a batch of Hitchcock-owned titles that had been locked up in the vault for a couple of decades (also including Rope, The Trouble With Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Rear Window). The film blew my everlovin' teenage mind at the time, and I've been lucky enough to see it in a theatre a few times since then, and it never fails to suck me into its descent into madness...
I just watched The Anderson Tapes on DVD last week. Sidney Lumet directing Jack Lemmon in Death Wish boggles my mind...
Truly a film both of and ahead of its time. It was a valedictory for Karloff, only a year or two before his passing...
