The Testament Of Judith Barton

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC The Testament Of Judith Barton

Imagine the cinematic masterpiece Vertigo re-told by its tragic heroine.

That is what The Testament of Judith Barton is.

Judy Barton may be the most-watched and least understood woman in movie history. Generations of viewers think Scottie Ferguson tells us all we need to know about her when he sputters, “You were his girl!” at Vertigo‘s climax. But what if the woman we’ve come to sympathize with by the time Scottie levels his deadly accusation is neither Gavin Elster’s mistress, nor a willing accessory to murder?

The Testament of Judith Barton, published with permission of The Hitchcock Trust and favorably reviewed by Kirkus, tells Judy’s behind-the-scenes side of the story in her own voice. Like Wicked for The Wizard Of Oz, it reveals the secret history of a classic film from a mysterious woman’s point of view.

Kirkus Reviews says, “Barton is telling her own tale this time around, and that turns out to be a good thing… This is a serious work, a multifaceted journey for devotees of Vertigo to contemplate and enjoy.”
