Spellbound (1945)

An absorbing psychological mystery, and we see elements of Hitchcock's more mature style of the 1950s begin to emerge. Peck, in only the second year of his film career, is paired with Bergman, then the most popular screen actress, and it would be a lesser film without them. The film has a famous dream sequence conceived by Salvador Dali, and directed by William Cameron Menzies instead of Hitchcock. Miklos Rozsa won an Oscar for his score, but Hitchcock felt it interfered with the mise-en-scène, and I tend to agree.
