Kim Novak to Attend Cannes ‘Vertigo’ screening

Thesp to be fest's guest of honor

PARIS — Alfred Hitchcock’s restored masterpiece “Vertigo” will unspool at the Cannes Film Festival in the presence of the 1958’s pic’s star, Kim Novak, who is the fest’s guest of honor.

Novak will also take part in the fest’s closing ceremony on May 26 to award one of the nods. Thesp first attended Cannes in 1959 for the presentation of Delbert Mann’s “Middle of the Night.”

Reminiscing on her role in “Vertigo,” which Hitchcock described as “a love story with a strange atmosphere,” Novak said, “What was interesting was that the scene reflected what I was going through at the time: it was the story of a woman who was forced to be someone she wasn’t.”

As the fest noted, Novak “left Hollywood prematurely to devote herself to painting.”

Novak’s credits also include Billy Wilder’s “Kiss Me, Stupid,” Richard Quine’s “Bell, Book and Candle” and “Strangers When We Meet.”

Cannes Classics’ complete lineup has yet to be unveiled.
