Film Description

Advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is lunching in a restaurant with his mother when he mistakenly answers a page for one George Kaplan. He soon finds himself on the run across the country, being pursued by enemies of the government who are convinced that he is a secret agent. He finds a friend in Eve Kendall (Eve Marie Saint), who helps conceal him during a perilous train journey, but soon discovers that she is not all she seems.

Terrific locations, smart photography, feather-light performances and a gripping script, this is 1950s Hitchcock at his most confident and most manipulative. Features a breathtaking credit sequence too.
