North By Northwest(1959)


One of the greatest of all the Hitchcock movies, North By
Northwest stars Cary Grant as a advertising exec who is
mistaken for another person, and THAT person is being
persude by some very unfriendly people!! Shot partially
in North Dakota at Mount Rushmore, it is typical Hitchcock
in it's twists and turns, and of course a beautiful girl thrown
into the mix! A

From Amazon.com:

A strong candidate for the most sheerly entertaining and
enjoyable movie ever made by a Hollywood studio (with
Citizen Kane, Only Angels Have Wings and Trouble in Paradise
running neck and neck). Positioned between the much heavier
and more profoundly disturbing Vertigo (1958) and the stark
horror of Psycho (1960), North by Northwest (1959) is Alfred
Hitchcock at his most effervescent in a romantic comedy-thriller
that also features one of the definitive Cary Grant performances.
Which is not to say that this is just "Hitchcock Lite"; seminal
Hitchcock critic Robin Wood (in his book Hitchcock's Films
Revisited) makes an airtight case for this glossy MGM
production as one of The Master's "unbroken series of
masterpieces from Vertigo to Marnie." It's a classic Hitchcock
Wrong Man scenario: Grant is Roger O. Thornhill (initials
ROT), an advertising executive who is mistaken by enemy
spies for a U.S. undercover agent named George Kaplan.
Convinced these sinister fellows (James Mason as the boss,
and Martin Landau as his henchman) are trying to kill him,
Roger flees and meets a sexy Stranger on a Train (Eva Marie
Saint), with whom he engages in one of the longest, most
convolutedly choreographed kisses in screen history. And,
of course, there are the famous set pieces: the stabbing
at the United Nations, the crop-duster plane attack in the
cornfield (where a pedestrian has no place to hide), and
the cliffhanger finale atop the stone faces of Mount
Rushmore. Plus a sparkling Ernest Lehman script and
that pulse-quickening Bernard Herrmann score. What
more could a moviegoer possibly desire?--Jim Emerson
