  • North By Northwest [1959]
    Edward Howard

    "North By Northwest" is perhaps the ultimate Hitchcock film, an amalgam of all his concerns and ideas into one epic masterpiece. Perpetual Hitch leading man Cary Grant is the definitive "wrong man" here, an average businessman who's mistaken for a government spy and thus drawn into a web of intrigue, violence, and international espionage. There are so many brilliant set-pieces here that it's impossible to name them all, but the machine gun attack from a diving crop duster and the final chase across Mount Rushmore have become iconic images of Hitchcockian filmmaking. Grant is suave and witty as ever in his roles for Hitch, and he gamely plays the part of an action hero when it's called for. This is sheerly joyful and exciting moviemaking, crammed with Hitch's characteristic humor and romance as well as the globe-spanning adventure at the plot's center. Definitely a must-own DVD.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.   The Master Of Suspense Presents A 3000-Mile Chase Across America! Cary Grant teams with Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this superlative espionage caper judged one of the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films and spruced up with a new digital transfer and remixed Dolby Surround Stereo. Grant plays a Manhattan advertising executive plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and, in another signature set piece, crop-dusted. He also holds on for dear life from that famed carved rock (for which back lot sets were used). But don't expect the Master Of Suspense to leave star or audience hanging.

American classic comedy drama directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) finds himself in a case of mistaken identity, as members of a strange organisation believe he is a man by the name of George Kaplan due to a miscommunication. With no other option, he flees across the country, being pursued by enemies of the government who are convinced that he is a secret agent. He finds a friend in Eve Kendall (Eve Marie Saint) who helps to conceal him during a perilous train journey, but he soon discovers that she is not all she seems.
