Product Description

Product Description

Grant/Saint/Landau ~ North By Northwest

Special Features

This special edition contains a documentary on the making of the film, hosted by costar Eva Marie Saint, that is a perfect prelude to seeing the film again. Included are such inside tidbits as how Hitchcock directed his actors, how the cast and crew produced the gasp-inducing stunts on the face of Mount Rushmore, and how many takes it took for Saint and Cary Grant to get their clinches just right. There's even a small, but very noticeable, gaffe that somehow made it into the final cut of the film. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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).

Format: DVD
This is arguably Cary Grants best film. Couple that with a terrific cast, dynamite story, immortal one-liners, some great scenes in actual locations, and classic Hitchcock editing and you have a shoe-in on any "best of all time list". This movie was made in 1958 and although it was current in it's day, it now is just as current as a period film set in 1958, keeping in mind of the political climate and cold war attitudes of the time. The costumes are very natural, having been bought in actual New York stores, and the set designs are beautifully designed. The set decoration is also first rate.
This DVD is a superb transfer. The color looks perfectly natural, the sound is full, low noise stereo and the widescreen is anamorphic. There is hardly any flaw in the print. Amazing. The menu is also animated to match the Saul Bass opening title and is wonderful. The "making of" film (30 minutes long) is superb and hosted by beautiful leading lady "Eve Marie Saint".
Finally, the score by Bernard Hermann adds to the high tension of the action. The orchestration and performance on this film is one of the very best of all time. I can't recommend this film enough for action, solid story and terrific action besides just being completely entertaining.

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.

Format: DVD
This has become a classic Alfred Hitchcock film, with film score by Bernard Herrmann. If the story is not remembered or commented on, everyone is familiar with the scene where Grant is getting attacked by a crop duster while standing in the middle of nowhere "North by Northwest".

Roger O. Thornhill <R.O.T> (Cary Grant), mild mannered advertising executive, raises his hand at the wrong time to send a telegram. The page boy is paging George Kaplan so Roger is mistaken for Kaplan (a shorter man with dandruff) and the fun begins. Turns out that Townsend/ Vandamm (James Mason) the bad guy is being dogged by Kaplan so Vandamm must do away with Kaplan.

Meanwhile back at the train Roger meats a cutie Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) that is apparently set on helping him.

I will not go into details as surprise and plot twisting is part of the suspense.

Will Roger get the girl?

Will Vandamm get Roger?

What is this all about?

Who is George Kaplan?

The 50th Anniversary edition of North by Northwest has just about everything anyone could want.

This is a 2-DVD set. On the first DVD is the movie itself, presented in its original widescreen format. You can watch it three ways: as the movie, as the movie with commentary by screenwriter Ernest Lehman, or as the movie with no sound but the Bernard Herrmann score. The film runs 2 hours and 16 minutes, which is the original length according to the IMDb. The commentary by Lehman is informative, though he doesn't offer as many detailed insights about the art of screenwriting as one would like.

On the second DVD contains a mass of special features. There are two theatrical trailers, a standard one plus one narrated humorously by Hitchcock himself, and there is one TV advertisement for the film. There is a stills gallery which runs for a few minutes. There are two features on North by Northwest, totalling over an hour between them; of these two, the "Making of" feature, which takes you through the production of the picture in chronological order, is the more substantial, the other one being more or less a collection of fan appreciation clips from directors and Hitchcock family members who admire the film. There is a nearly hour-long feature on Hitchcock's cinematic style, which is informative and which has some reference to North by Northwest as well as to many of Hitchcock's other films. Finally, there an hour-and-a-half PBS special on the career and roles of Cary Grant, with lots of biographical information about Grant and numerous appreciations of his work by various people. It's quite good, but would have been better without one uncalled-for four-letter word used in an interview by one of Grant's former wives.
