The clip Gavin Elster hires john from Vertigo (1958) with James Stewart, Tom Helmore
There are plenty of street-level bars in this town.
Would you like a drink now?
No, I don't think so.
It's a little early in the day for me.
I guess that covers everything, doesn't it?
I never married, I don't see much of the old college gang.
I'm a retired detective and you're in the shipbuilding business.
What's on your mind, Gavin?
I asked you to come up here, Scottie, knowing that you'd quit detective work but I wondered whether you'd go back on the job as a special favor to me.
I want you to follow my wife.
No, it's not that. We're very happily married.
-Well, then.... -I'm afraid some harm may come to her.
-From whom? -Someone dead.
Scottie, do you believe that someone out of the past someone dead, can enter and take possession of a living being?
If I told you I believe this has happened to my wife, what would you say?
I'd say take her to the nearest psychiatrist or psychologist or neurologist or.... Or maybe just the plain family doctor.
I'd have him check on you, too.
Then you're of no use to me. I'm sorry I wasted your time.
Thanks for coming in, Scottie.
I didn't mean to be that rough.
No, it sounds idiotic, I know.
And you're still the hardheaded Scot, aren't you?
Always were. Do you think I'm making it up?
I'm not making it up. I wouldn't know how.
She'll be talking to me about something.
Suddenly the words fade into silence.
A cloud comes into her eyes and they go blank.
