    He was originally slated to do Sondheim's COMPANY on Broadway but dropped out and was replaced by Dean Jones.

    True, but there is a vulnerable quality that I find endearing; I have three of his albums and enjoy them from time to time. He's no Frank, but now and then, I give those albums a spin.

    I just found a near mint copy of a Perkins album a few weeks ago while out antique shopping. It's a perfect companion to my 45rpm of Perkins' "Moon-Light Swim"

    The Perkins albums are all on CD and easy to find.

    courtesy of the indefatigable Greg Philip, here's something that all Vertigo fans are sure to find of interest: a version of the movie that has the sequoia tree cross-section labelled in French



    it leaves me wondering, though: if there was a separate French version, what other language versions were created?

    "Nothing to see here. Please move along..."These are foreign version inserts. Separate negative roll. They can either be dealt with as a C roll during the exposure of matrices, or physically cut into fv prints, as they are being conformed.Same situation as main, intermission, ends.RAH

    Vertigo is coming out in the UK as Region Free BD on September 23rd. I suspect Region A will have a similar release around the same time period.

    It is interesting though. I wonder if there is any extra Vertigo footage out there, the only outtakes I'm aware of are the 2 in the trailer, Madeleine at Ernie's and Judy's "If I do what you tell me" line in Scottie's apartment.

    I'd guess there is at least a German version as well, the same thing was done for Psycho:

    I agree...but that's really not the cover I'd have gone with. I'm happy Kim Novak's on the cover (is this the first time?), but the whole thing looks pretty amateurish, the bottom looks like someone went nuts with the Brush tools in Photoshop and the top...with so many shots of Stewart and Novak together, they couldn't do better than a lame blend? Continued underwhelming from Universal.
    I'm always on the lookout for Vertigo material too, I'm constantly surprised when I still find things I haven't seen before. For example, I just came across this promo picture yesterday:

    [​IMG]

    Isn't that bizarre? Looks like zombie Jimmy Stewart has come to terrorize twin Kim Novak sisters.

    ...Actually, I'd pay to see that movie, sounds a lot more fun than this Vertigo fluff. Hell, they could even use the original title, "From Amongst the Dead"...

    Beyond foreign version inserts, most originals of which were destroyed, quite a bit of footage that went to stock exists. As well as multiple shots of the body falling.

    Nothing derogatory. Merely older news.

    Okay, fair enough.

    It was new to me.

    Ms Novak has only ever had good things to say about Stewart - it's plain to see they got along famously. That picture is adorable. Don't forget they also made "Bell Book and Candle" in the same year - although it's been said that Stewart felt miscast as the romantic leading man.

    The Blu-ray single release of "Vertigo" is coming to the UK on the 23rd September - here is a look at the cover art...

    I'll be seeing VERTIGO in 70 mm next Saturday night here in Melbourne, Australia.

    As promised, I'll have my stopwatch and will report in due course.

    Where are all the UK certification symbols on the UK cover? That's a bad cover.

    A quick glance at the features on the UK disc would indicate that the dvd features are being ported over. If I don't see a release date for the US, i'll be buying the UK disc.

    Didn't one of the DVD releases have as an extra the added scene at the end that was ultimately and correctly cut from the film?

    You mean the foreign censorship ending?
