Alfred Hitchcock, USA, 1959, 136 mins, PG

Cary Grant plays a Manhattan advertising executive who’s mistaken for a government agent. His attempts to clear up the misunderstanding only implicate him in a murder that makes him the target in a nationwide hunt. Forced on the run, he’s faced at every turn by assassins out to kill him, and the mysterious Eva Marie Saint who’s only too keen to help. Running at over two hours, Hitch is able to pack in many memorable sequences including the famous crop-dusting scene. While each of them excels in intrigue and suspense, he cleverly links them with black humour. Hitch delivers these emotional highs and lows with perfect timing, allowing moments of relief to break out before mounting another crescendo of excitement. The effect is like a grand musical work, conducted with bravura audience manipulation. Starring: Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason
