North by Northwest

North by Northwest
[DVD North]

An advertising agent is wrongly accused and framed as a killer. After fleeing the United Nations in New York, a suspenseful chase ensues across the United States, the apex of which ends atop Mt. Rushmore. Lot's of twists and turns to the plot (some more predictable than others), great script, and excellent music score by Bernard Herrmann. Continually listed as one of the top movies of all time. Great performances by Cary Grant, and Eva Marie Saint. (Also, keep an eye out for Hitchcock's cameo appearance!). [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try other Hitchcock DVDs: The Birds, Notorious, Dial M for Murder, Vertigo, Marnie, Lifeboat, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Psycho.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
