this is a sassy smart babes appreciation blog

Listen, I have a lot of issues with Vertigo upon my first rewatch of it in years, including the inherent creepy Nice Guy™ness of Scottie’s (Jimmy Stewart) “love” for Madeleine (Kim Novak), but my biggest issue is why the hell wouldn’t you hit it with dream girl Midge (Barbara Bel Geddes)? She’s got a cool creative career, a great apartment with a sweet view and tons of books, brains, opinions, sass, awesome glasses, and she’s a total babe. Like, I don’t think acrophobia is your only problem, Scottie; jussayin’, you’re blowin’ it.
