Audio clue:



The award-winning film we're going for is as serious as they come, and has no connection to Peter Pan, except that the song is one that the film's lead character might sing.

Great film, Dargo, I watched it again recently. There's a good print online. All 2:43:10 of it!

Nope, sorry skimpole. It's not 'Chinatown'.

Next clue: The lead character (female) moves from one landlocked U.S. state to another landlocked U.S. state during the course of the film.

Good deduction here, skimpole. And so with this in mind...

Next clue: This film's entire budget would have been but a fraction of any movie Hitchcock ever made once he went to Hollywood.

And speaking of directors...

Bonus clue: The film in question is considered the director's best known and best regarded work.

(...and in fact, was the only full-length film he ever directed)
