Whether its a complete rip or homage to Hitchcock is for the indivdual to decide but I absolutely love the film. I know it is not De Palma's best but it's my favorite out of the films I've seen.  Thanks to the new Blu ray release, I can finally own this instead of the SD DVD. The score by Pino Donaggio is great as well Youtube Playlist. Here's a scene analysis from the Toronto International Film Festival youtube account https://youtu.be/jExXclbCetc. I don't know if there was another trailer that was made for the film besides this one: Trailer https://youtu.be/CJ8f_8ZvkPs

I saw Body Double at the theater when it was released, thought it was pretty good. 

It was easy to tell that it was a full homage to Hitchcock, but why not share from one of the best? Some hints of Vertigo, some of Rear Window, for sure.  Here in the mid-1970s the city showed some Hitchcock films on big screen, got to see those too.

Is Margherita Pace the lead actress?  ;)


There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
