VERTIGO, The Alternative Ending

When Vertigo was released in Europe in 1958, it contained an ending with an additional scene inserted.  According to most accounts, Hitchcock provided this extended ending in order to satisfy a foreign censorship committee that apparently would not accept onscreen murderers getting away with their crimes. In this ending, the final scene takes place in Midge’s apartment where she listens to a radio report about Gavin Elster’s impending capture in Europe.
