Classic American spy thriller film produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, and James Mason. Madison Avenue advertising man Roger Thornhill finds himself thrust into the world of spies when he is mistaken for a man by the name of George Kaplan.

“Grant’s technique, so well established, shines brightly under Hitchcock’s guidance. The two seem completely en rapport in movie making. Miss Saint, effective in her former sweet or drab roles, makes the switch to glamour as a lovely Mata Hari type.” — John L. Scott , Los Angeles Times
“The pace is fast, the thrills plentiful, there isn’t a dull moment, the story is amazingly inventive, even if the long arm of coincidence is not only wrenched but nearly fractured.” — Cyrus Durgin , Boston Globe
