A San Francisco detective suffering from acrophobia investigates the strange activities of an old friend's wife, all the while becoming dangerously obsessed with her.
The name "Madeleine" refers, of course, to Mary Magdalene, or Mary of Migdala. "Migdal "is Hebrew for "tower." "Madeleine" is the only name of the four main characters from the original French novel that was retained in the film. "Judy" was "Renée" ... ...
Officer on rooftop:
Give me your hand. Give me your hand.
Madeleine enters the McKittrik Hotel and the sky is overcast. When she appears in the window of the 2nd floor room, she is clearly illuminated as from sunlight, throwing a distinct shadow against a light background, whilst the rest of the shot remains illuminated modestly (possibly assembled footage).
There is no end title on this film.
