"He admired that wordless passage in Vertigo, where Cary Grant trails the mysterious woman to the waterfront with the San Francisco backdrop."

Vertigo (1958) is a psychological thriller in which a retired police detective is paid by an acquaintance to find out why his wife is behaving so strangely. The screenplay was written by Samuel Taylor and Alec Coppel, a superior adaptation of the Boileau-Narcejac novel D'entre les morts.

James Stewart, not Cary Grant, plays Scottie Ferguson, the detective who follows Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak) in her wanderings about San Francisco.
