No Losing It


              .............. seems that Hitchcock is simply saying that utopia does not exist in real life. We may be able to imagine some kind of perfect situation for ourselves, but it can never be achieved in reality. There will always be something to throw off the equilibrium of things. In a sense we all suffer from vertigo, and as Midge says to Johnny ''there's no losing it''.
