We will screen Obsession, a tale of lost love: Cliff Robertson plays a man whose wife and daughter both die in a botched New Orleans kidnapping. But on a visit to the glorious San Miniato al Monte Church in Florence the man sees his wife come to life right before his eyes as an Italian church restorer. In scenes that recapitulate Hitchcock s Vertigo in which Jimmy Stewart finds and loses twice his beloved from the tower of Mission San Juan Batista, he is given a second chance to rescue his wife. Hitchcock s favorite composer, Bernard Herrmann, scores this haunting tale that many people would believe Hitchcock must have directed right after he finished his final film in 1976. But in fact, his double, Brian de Palma, did.
