Dream Sequence in Spellbound

by Seth Rogoff

The dream sequence in Hitchcock’s Spellbound, designed by the Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali captures this Freudian sensibility. Dreams in the Freudian system were great puzzles, the solutions to which could unlock hidden mysteries in the human mind. Such an unlocking of a mystery is at the heart of the film. The dream scene in this case plays the key role of leading the film to its denouement.
