North by Northwest (Hitchcock, 1959) Director: Alfred Hitchcock Writer: Ernest Lehman Cast: Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason Genre: Action, Adventure, Myster.
Incredible action, non-stop thrills, an incredibly well written and complex story composed with technical superiority by one of the greatest auteurs in film history, North by Northwest is a masterpiece as are the other Hitchcock films I've reviewed.
John's underpressed anger over Eva betraying him, and trying to stop her from pulling any more phoney tricks is excellently conveyed both through Cary Grant's acting and the dialogue.
