“They’ll always remember me in “Vertigo”, and I’m not that good in it, but I don’t blame me because there are a couple of scenes where I was wonderful”. Kim Novak.
This square shows Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart in a scene from Vertigo. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, who was the subject of a previous square. Cinematography by Robert Burks. One of Mr S’s favourite films (Goodfellas, being his favourite).
Having spent the last couple of hours reading about Kim Novak, I now feel sad. About Hollywood. And women. And Women in Hollywood. Seems she had the right idea in getting the hell outa Dodge.
This is the final square of my London Pairs Patchwork. It is a patchwork of papers gleaned from the pavements (mostly) of the city in which I live. There are sixteen squares making up the whole piece. You can see it here.
The square was cut from a BFI leaflet.
All of my work is numbered. This piece is 795.
The patchwork is now in my shop.
