North by Northwest

North by Northwest ★★★★

An absolute landmark for the thriller genre, complete with action, comedy, and a decent dose of romance as well. Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint are superbly enchanting as our protagonists, one a man way in over his head thanks to a case of mistaken identity, and the other a mysterious and seductive woman who is guarding many secrets. There are few movies as consistently exciting and engaging as North By Northwest. Although I have a few minor quibbles with one or two slower scenes and an abrupt ending, it is nevertheless another Hitchcock classic that everyone should see at least once.
