Movie Monday

The season for Alfred Hitchcock is coming. Get a warm drink, some popcorn for suspense relief, and watch it again: “North by Northwest”. I saw Mount Rushmore when it looked exactly like it is portrayed in this film. Of course–I’m old–but it’s still a winner in my book, and who doesn’t love smooth Cary Grant?

This classic suspense film finds New York City ad executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) pursued by ruthless spy Phillip Vandamm (James Mason) after Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent. Hunted relentlessly by Vandamm’s associates, the harried Thornhill ends up on a cross-country journey, meeting the beautiful and mysterious Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) along the way. Soon Vandamm’s henchmen close in on Thornhill, resulting in a number of iconic action sequences.
Release date: October 22, 1999 (USA)
