Product Description

A strong candidate for the most sheerly entertaining and enjoyable movie ever made by a Hollywood studio (with Citizen Kane, Only Angels Have Wings and Trouble in Paradise running neck and neck). Positioned between the much heavier and more profoundly disturbing Vertigo (1958) and the stark horror of Psycho (1960), North by Northwest (1959) is Alfred Hitchcock at his most effervescent in a romantic comedy-thriller that also features one of the definitive Cary Grant performances. Which is not to say that this is just "Hitchcock Lite"; seminal Hitchcock critic Robin Wood (in his book Hitchcock's Films Revisited) makes an airtight case for this glossy MGM production as one of The Master's "unbroken series of masterpieces from Vertigo to Marnie." It's a classic Hitchcock Wrong Man scenario: Grant is Roger O. Thornhill (initials ROT), an advertising executive who is mistaken by enemy spies for a U.S. undercover agent named George Kaplan. Convinced these sinister fellows (James Mason as the boss, and Martin Landau as his henchman) are trying to kill him, Roger flees and meets a sexy Stranger on a Train (Eva Marie Saint), with whom he engages in one of the longest, most convolutedly choreographed kisses in screen history. And, of course, there are the famous set pieces: the stabbing at the United Nations, the crop-duster plane attack in the cornfield (where a pedestrian has no place to hide), and the cliffhanger finale atop the stone faces of Mount Rushmore. Plus a sparkling Ernest Lehman script and that pulse-quickening Bernard Herrmann score. What more could a moviegoer possibly desire? --Jim Emerson

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous blu-ray, great extras Nov. 12 2009
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
North by Northwest has always been my favourite Hitchcock flic, and seeing it on blu-ray is like seeing it as a new movie. The background detail is beautiful & this film looks gorgeous on blu-ray. Additionally, included in this 50th anniversary edition are these fantastic documentaries: The Master's Touch: Hitchcock's Signature Style, Cary Grant: A Class Apart, North by Northwest: One for the Ages, & Destination Hitchcock: The Making of North by Northwest. And more extras include: an audio commentary by writer Ernest Lehman, trailers, stills gallery, & music only audio track, as well as a 44 page in-case booklet. (Surprisingly with all the extras trading off disc space, the compressed audio is still fairly good.) Fans of this fun and suspenseful film, will no doubt appreciate the enhanced picture quality and bonus materials of the blu-ray (like me).

The transfer to Blue Ray was flawless and brought the story even more to life. The specila features and the enclosed booklet were informative and first rate. Glad to have this movie in my library.

By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film is not only a pure delight, but could arguably be said to be one of the greatest films of all time. The film oozes charisma. When you are watching it, it is like you are brought into another world of pure entertainment. You cannot take your eyes off of it. It is a mixture of charisma, suspense, action, eroticism, and comdedy that few films have ever been able to emulate.

Why is this film so good? Affred Hitchcock and Cary Grant. Hitchcock is on many a list as the greatest director in film history, and Cary Grant is on many a list as the greatest movie star in film history. When these two collaborate at their best, what you have is pure movie magic.

The screenplay by Ernest Lehman is a masterpiece of the genre, and the supporting cast is brilliant, especially James Mason, who is the epitomy of suave evil. Martin Landau is unbelievably menacing, and Eva Marie Saint is so intelligent and sexy as the femme fatale.

Whatever you do, see this film before you die.
