Quite so. I hope that Mike Frank may be big enough to tell a story against
>himself in this respect!
ken mogg says . . . and he's right . . . indeed his
memory of the incident is far more precise than mine,
and on target in suggesting that a detail i was looking
to "interpret" [in VERTIGO] was claimed--by someone
who was there--to be a permanent feature of the set
where the shot was taken . . .
but i remain, if not unrepentant, at least not convinced that
this fact about the set, which i grant to be true, itself proves
that no meaning can be read into the shot . . . .
the world of fact and the world of interpretation overlap, but
they sometimes face in different directions . . . n'est pas??
but as to the facts of the case, ken is a superb guide, and
likely his reading of them is more cogent than my own
