Considered by many to be director Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest achievement, Vertigo is set among San Francisco’s renown landmarks. James Stewart plays Scottie Ferguson, an acrophobic detective hired to shadow a friend’s wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). After he saves her from drowning in the bay, Scottie’s interest shifts from business to fascination with the icy, alluring blonde. When he finds another woman remarkably like his lost love, the now obsessed detective must unravel the secrets of the past to find the key to his future.


Lawrence Modern’s mission is to raise awareness of midcentury and modern architecture in Lawrence and promote its preservation to ensure that future generations will have significant examples to appreciate and/or to live in.
