I headed there this morning, to make a pilgrimage to the site of my obsessions. I was last here in 1976. Frequent viewers of the film (if you are not among these, why not?) will surely recognize:
Looking across the square, to the livery stable and building where the inquest took place. Both were securely locked up, to keep out gawkers such as me.
View of the chapel, from where 'Madeline' looks over her shoulder and pulls away from Scottie ("there's something I have to do").
Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak were here. As you may have heard, it did not end well, twice.
'Vertigo' can be viewed with10 minutes advanced notice at my house, any evening.
Leaving Santa Cruz tomorrow, heading for Ashland. My work here is done.
