Part of Weekend Classics

65th Anniversary – 4K DCP Restoration — Cary Grant stars as Roger O. Thornhill, a hapless New York advertising executive who’s mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies and is forced to go on the lam with an American agent (Eva Marie Saint). Hitchcock’s sure-handed comic drama pits Grant against a crop duster and lands him in a fight for his life on Mount Rushmore — a true cliffhanger if ever there was one.

“Alfred Hitchcock's new thriller, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, is one of those no holds barred films. For better than two hours, he lets the Technicolor melodrama ramble across the VistaVision screen while gleefully setting traps for his hero.” ––Barbara L. Wilson, Philadelphia Inquirer (Mon, Aug 17, 1959)

“Grant's technique, so well established, shines brightly under Hitchcock's guidance. The two seem completely en rapport in movie making. Miss Saint, effective in her former sweet or drab roles, makes the switch to glamour as a lovely Mata Hari type.” ––John L. Scott, Los Angeles Times (Sat, Jul 25, 1959)

“​​The romcom suspense caper is a cinematic recipe that Alfred Hitchcock took with him to his grave; certainly I can't imagine anyone now succeeding in blending thrills, spills, caresses and laughs the way he did in this sublime classic from 1959.” ––Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
