Season 2: Episode 71 - North By Northwest
North by Northwest (1959)
Screenplay by Earnest Lehman who wanted to write the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures provided this gem of a film that lives on in the halls of one of the best motion pictures ever made.
Hitchcock wanted to something fun and light with a murder mystery and a man mistaken. He has been running with the idea for a number of years until he decided to go forth and hiring Lehman to write a script.
The film stars Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, Martin Landau, James Mason and Leo G Carroll. The film is a box office smash and still breaks records on reissues. This is one of the films that reminds us why we love Hitch.
