Movies North by Northwest (MGM 1959, Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint) Published 7 months ago on October 29, 2018 North by Northwest is one of Hitchcock’s greatest, with suspense, action, and comedy in one non-stop motion picture. In one of his patented ordinary-man-in-exceptional-circumstances plots, advertising executive Grant gets kidnapped from a business engagement and winds up in a baffling, twisting battle with enemy agents and on the run from both police and the agents. This technically superb film yielded some of Hitchcock’s best-known images: the crop duster bearing down on Grant in a remote cornfield, Grant and Saint dangling from Mt. Rushmore, Saint’s frank seduction of Grant on a train. Essential viewing. The laserdisc includes an audio commentary by Frank Danielle, dean of USC Film School, with special screenplay analysis. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best (Original) Screenplay. https://youtube.com/watch?v=9NPI9QeeDDc production details USA | MGM | 136 minutes | 1959 Director: Alfred Hitchcock Producer: Alfred Hitchcock Cinematography: Robert Burks Editor: George Tomasini Music: Bernard Herrmann Script: Ernest Lehman Production Design: William A.
