“North by Northwest” is one of the best films ever made by Alfred Hitchcock. The posters reflect two of the most impressive scenes in the film – the plane attack on the cornfield and the escape on Mount Rushmore. It was a very modern film for its time and it was imitated by many thrillers that were produced in the next decades. Cary Grant was also in excellent shape and his numerous action scenes inspired the filmmakers of the 80’s and 90’s. The cold blonde Eva Marie Saint was also effective in the leading female role, even if one would have liked to see Grace Kelly in this. The villain was wonderfully played by James Mason.
