North by Northwest George Kaplan

Posted by WarnerBrosOnline on Oct. 19, 2009

On Blu-ray and DVD at www.wbshop.com . Cary Grant teams with director Alfred Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this superlative espionage caper judged one of the American Film Institutes Top-100 American Films and spruced up with a new digital transfer and remixed Dolby Digital Stereo. Grant plays a Manhattan advertising executive plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and in another signature set piece, crop-dusted. He also holds on for dear life from the facial features of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore (backlot sets were used). But dont expect the Master of Suspense to leave star or audience hanging.
