First up: Alfred Hitchcock’s classic North by Northwest. A hapless New York advertising executive is mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies, and is pursued across the country while he looks for a way to survive. Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason.
Followed at 7:30pm by Destination Hitchcock: The Making of North by Northwest. Hosted by Eva Marie Saint, the film’s leading lady, this 40-minute documentary of Alfred Hitchcock’s only M-G-M film combines interviews (Martin Landau, Patricia Hitchcock, production designer Robert F. Boyle and screenwriter Ernest Lehman), movie clips and behind the scenes photos to make for a fascinating look at one of the silver screen’s glowing gems. For fans of North by Northwest (1959) and Hitchcock aficionados, this is a must see treat.
