North by Northwest
Alfred Hitchcock was at the top of his game when he directed Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in this sophisticated cross-country thriller. Bachelor Grant is a dapper, Madison Avenue ad executive who becomes a victim of mistaken identity and is soon on the run for his life. Saint’s a mysterious, blonde seductress who seems more than eager to help out the handsome fugitive. Classic set pieces play out at the U.N. headquarters and in an Indiana cornfield. The breathless climax finds Grant and Saint dangling from a presidential profile on Mt. Rushmore. (1959) 136 MIN. (NR) (WARNER BROS.)
