I was reading about Vertigo¬†and discovered that there was dispute between Alfred Hitchcock and a few other ¬†producers regarding one of the film’s scenes. This is the “letter writing scene” during which the character of Judy writes a letter detailing the specifics about Madeleine’s death, revealing to the audience that the two characters are the same person. Originally Hitchcock liked the scene because he thought it helped people understand Judy’s inner conflict upon meeting Scottie, however later on he decided the film would be better without it and instead wanted the big reveal about the Judy/Madeleine alter ego come near the very end of the film. So what do you think, was it the right choice to have the scene remain so we could understand Judy’s motives or would it have been better taking it out and instead leave the audience guessing about the truth until the very end of the film?
