It wouldn't surprise me if Hitchcock got a little sweaty filming it. Hitchcock also manages to catch you off-guard by moments after seeing Eva slip a note giving away where she and John are hiding.

Very cool! Then the theme of fast, confused movement continues as Cary Grant bustles down a very crowded New York City street.
The film was in perpetual motion, paced flawlessly as the thrills never stop and the audience is constantly left on the edge of their seats.
