    So I just finished watching "Vertigo" for the first time and first thing that popped into my head when I started to think about the move was:
    Basically every episode of Scooby-Doo was a cheap ripoff of the plot of Vertigo. You know, the antagonist makes up some "ghost story", gives enough substance to it that people begin to believe it, and uses it to cover up what ever crime they are committing.

    I see a great movie like Vertigo and this is what it inspires in me?

    Barbara Belle Geddes did look a little bit like a blonde Velma.

    Except in this case the mastermind of the plot flees the country

    Yeah, so how 'bout an animated version of Vertigo, with Shaggy as Scotty and BBG as Velma?

    Or...

    how about we get Danny Elfman to do his Bernard Hermann impression all over the ineviatable Scooby Doo 2?

    On second thoughts, don't - I might be tempted to subject myself to it.
