Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest

Classic Film Night

Mistaken for a government agent, advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is kidnapped by foreign spies looking for top secret microfilm. Although Thornhill manages to escape a stage car accident designed to kill him, he is later recaptured and framed for murder.

Thornhill is forced to evade both the police and the spies while searching the real spy.  Along the way, he is aided by the beautiful and seductive Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) who is neither as innocent nor as helpful as she seems. James Mason plays the head of the spies, Phillip Vandamm.

North by Northwest is considered to be a masterpiece for its themes of deception, mistaken identity, and moral relativism in the Cold War era.
