Kim Novak, the star of Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece "Vertigo" who turned her back on Hollywood, is to make a return to the red carpet at next month's Cannes film festival, organisers said on Monday.
The US actress, 80, refused to accept the ironfisted rule of America's big studios and in 1965 largely abandoned film to devote herself to painting.
She will be guest of honour at a special screening to mark the restoration of the film regarded as Hitchcock's finest work.
Hitchcock once described the "Vertigo" as "a love story with a strange atmosphere".
