Richard Wagner, Notes to Tristan and Isolde Vertigo is Alfred Hitchcock's most
uncompromising film, and Bernard Herrmann's fullest realization of his favorite
dramatic themes: romantic obsession, isolation, and the ultimate release of death
. ... Hitchcock's free adaptation of the French novel (reset in a ghostly, poeticized
