The clip getting over acrophobia from Vertigo (1958) with Barbara Bel Geddes, James Stewart
No shoulder straps, no back straps, but does everything a brassiere should do.
Works on the principle of the cantilever bridge.
An aircraft engineer down the peninsula designed it.
He worked it out in his spare time.
Kind of a hobby.
A do-it-yourself type of thing.
How's your love life, Midge?
That's following a train of thought.
Aren't you ever gonna get married?
You know there's only one man in the world for me, Johnny-O.
You mean me. We were engaged once, weren't we?
-Three whole weeks. -Good old college days.
But you were the one that called off the engagement, you remember?
I'm still available. Available Ferguson.
Midge, do you remember a fellow in college by the name of Gavin Elster?
-Gavin Elster? -Yes, funny name.
You'd think I would? No.
I got a call from Gavin today. He dropped out of sight during the war.
Somebody said he went East. I guess he's back.
-It's a Mission number. -That's Skid Row, isn't it?
He's probably on the bum and wants to touch you for the price of a drink.
Well, I'm on the bum. I'll buy him a couple drinks and tell him my troubles.
Not tonight. How about you and me going out for a beer?
Sorry, old man. Work.
Then, I think I'll go home.
Midge, what'd you mean, there's no losing it?
I asked my doctor.
He said that only another emotional shock could do it and probably wouldn't.
You're not gonna go diving off another rooftop to find out?
-I think I can lick it. -How?
I have a theory.
I think if I can get used to heights just a little bit at a time just a little, like that, progressively, you see?
