North by Northwest


“Arguably Hitchcock’s most consistently entertaining movie, this romantic thriller (now 50 years young!) comprises many of his most memorably virtuoso set-pieces. Thanks simply to a paging announcement in a hotel lobby, New York advertising man Roger O Thornhill finds himself the victim of a catastrophic case of mistaken identity; to clear his name – and stay alive – he suddenly has to leave town, first for Chicago, then on to South Dakota. En route, protection from his pursuers is provided by the evocatively named Eve”
