On November 3, Warner Home Video celebrates the 50th anniversary of North by Northwest
, Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock
's sleek masterwork, with spectacularly restored 50th Anniversary Editions on DVD.
(as the ultimate man-on-the-run in his fourth Hitchcock teaming) gives a superlative performance while Eva Marie Saint
(perfect Hitchcock heroine Eve Kendall) is at her sultry and sexy best in this heart-pounding thriller.
Grant plays Manhattan adman Roger Thornhill, who is at once plunged into the world of spies and counterspies, abducted, framed for murder, chased, and (in the signature set-piece) crop-dusted. At the films’ end, he hangs on for dear life from the facial features of Mount Rushmore’s Presidents where he ultimately rescues Miss Saint.
