Yet another 39 Steps



Staircases appear frequently in Hitchcock's films, from the beginning (or before the beginning, in his 1925 set design for The Blackguard) to the end (the final shots of Family Plot, 1976). The opening shot of the first Hitchcock-directed movie, The Pleasure Garden, also features a spiral staircase with chorus girls descending.


Following a gorgeous Norwegian girl with green suede boots up some flights of stairs in a cement factory, Sam Renseiw experienced an uncanny deja-vu, with a slight touch of Rimini-Protokoll. View the steep ascent by clicking here or shovel in above. (patafilm # 262, 01'52'', 8.4 MB, Quicktime/mov - Streaming Flash version for PC here)

How the soundscape changes it! It becomes a mystic experience, like memories often do. The harshness drops off and the dirt turns into digital dust that gently tickles the eye.
I like memories, even if they weren't my own.
