The Film

North by Northwest

Alfred Hitchcock | US | 131

With Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Leo G. Carroll. This absurdly thrilling entertainment from the Master of Suspense stars a never-better Grant as an advertising executive on the run from a dastardly group of spies who have mistaken him for a government agent. Shot in Technicolor and featuring as many vertiginous angles, great escapes, and witty bits of dialogue as one could conceive for a single film, Hitchcock’s North by Northwest is an extraordinary, rollicking masterpiece.
