North by Northwest

Often refered to as Hitchcock's greatest hits package NORTH BY NORTHWEST still delivers one hell of a punch almost half a century later. Starring the great Cary Grant as an advertising executive who is mistaken for a secret agent this is still one of the most taut action thrillers you can lay your eyes on. The crop duster plane scene and the Mount Rushmore incident still stand out as benchmarks in the history of American cinema. As always Bernard Herrmann delivers an amazing score to compliment. Fine, fine, fine support from Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, look for young Martin Landau in just his second big screen appearance.
