So, perhaps foolishly, I thought it would be fun to cut out Jimmy Stewart’s Floating Head of Death from the dream sequence in VERTIGO and insert it into a frame from the tunnels of light sequence in 2001. As you can see, I’ve lovingly preserved the bit of neck sticking out of Jimmy’s invisible polo-neck, and his weird billowing hair-tuft. Why? Well, why any of it?
Somehow dissatisfied with my strange efforts, I then cut out Eugene Pallette’s Floating Head of Death from the zany climax of Busby Berkeley’s THE GANG’S ALL HERE (badly) and stuck that into the dream sequence from VERTIGO. Well, it makes as much sense as anything else around here.
