Directed by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, "North by Northwest" is a gripping tale of mistaken identity and espionage. Cary Grant stars as Roger Thornhill, an ordinary man thrust into an extraordinary world of danger and intrigue. As he's chased across iconic American landmarks, Thornhill must unravel a web of espionage to clear his name and save the mysterious Eve Kendall, played by Eva Marie Saint. Hitchcock's masterful storytelling and Grant's charismatic performance make "North by Northwest" a timeless classic in the realm of thrilling cinema.
In 1995, North by Northwest was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
