Madison Avenue advertising man Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) finds himself thrust into the world of spies when he is mistaken for a man by the name of George Kaplan. He is pursued across America by a group of murderous agents and a mysterious blonde (Eva Marie Saint). Not all is as it seems however, leading to a dramatic rescue and escape at the top of Mt. Rushmore.
