Big Screen Classics: NORTH BY NORTHWEST
May 5, 2014
A case of mistaken identity leads to murder, mayhem, and the ultimate thrill-ride.
Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is a simple advertising executive going out to lunch when a couple of thugs pick him up and force him into a car, thinking that Thornhill is really a man named George Kaplan, supposedly in possession of a secret microfilm canister that the U.S. government and rival political factions are after. Narrowly escaping death, Thornhill is on the run from good and bad alike on a race against time to clear his name.
