Kim Novak is the unforgettable heroine of Alfred Hitchcocks Cold Sweat. In this documentary, the first ever devoted to her, she opens up with immense sincerity. The film tells the story of her meteoric rise to Hollywood stardom, and her resistance — great and small — to the system, particularly her scandalous relationship with African-American actor and singer Samy Davis Junior. In 1966, at the age of 33, the actress fled the City of Angels to begin a new life far from Hollywood. Kim Novak was a rebel at the heart of a system that, by manufacturing goddesses, broke women, a system she continues to denounce today.
