Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Leo G Carroll, Jessie Royce Landis
North by Northwest treads a bizarre tightrope between sex and repression, nightmarish thriller and urbane comedy. Cary Grant is truly superb as the light-hearted advertising executive who’s abducted, escapes, and is then hounded across America trying to find out what’s going on, and slowly being forced to assume another man’s identity.
With a sizzling love interest in the form of Eva Marie Saint, James Mason on top form as a suave villain, and a thrilling score by Bernard Herrmann, it has all the ingredients of a classic.
