"Grant's technique, so well established, shines brightly under Hitchcock's guidance."—John L. Scott, Los Angeles Times

"One of Hitchcock’s most entertaining American thrillers."—Pauline Kael, New York

"Distills Alfred Hitchcock's obsessions, techniques, and themes into a singular, deliriously entertaining form."—Brian Eggert, Deep Focus Review

This classic suspense film finds New York City ad executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) pursued by ruthless spy Phillip Vandamm (James Mason) after Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent. Hunted relentlessly by Vandamm's associates, the harried Thornhill ends up on a cross-country journey, meeting the beautiful and mysterious Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) along the way. Soon Vandamm's henchmen close in on Thornhill, resulting in a number of iconic action sequences.
