North by Northwest
With Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Leo G. Carroll. The culmination of Hitchcock’s extraordinary run of masterpieces in the 1950s, this insanely thrilling entertainment 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, North by Northwest is Hitchcock at his most dizzyingly huge.
