North by Northwest--Great Directors Film Series
We conclude the 1950s portion of our Great Directors Series with Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic, North by Northwest. Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, North by Northwest is an American thriller whose electrifying plot turns on a case of mistaken identity: Roger Thornhill, a innocent man (Grant), is pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization. Thornhill is trying to prevent government secrets from being smuggled out of the country by the insidious group, and they make attempts on his life. North by Northwest is numbered among the essential Hitchcock pictures. The movie will begin at 1:00 PM and light snacks will be served.
