Gripping, suspenseful, and visually iconic, this late-period Hitchcock classic, featuring an exhilarating score by legendary Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, is one of the most popular spy thrillers of all time. 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.
Shown with one intermission.
