Must-See Movie: North by Northwest

3 Jul

Yes, it’s an oldie but you will thank me when you sit down and watch North by Northwest (1959) starring Cary Grant and directed by the amazing Alfred Hitchcock. Actually, if I could assign homework for the 4th of July, I would say watch this along with Rear Window and Rebecca, also directed by Hitchcock. No one can compare to his body of work. He’s genius. And if you don’t know who is, well YouTube and Google him. You’ll be entertained for hours.

I don’t want to say too much but the movie is about mistaken identity and contains one of the most memorable scenes in the history of cinema.

Fun Fashion Fact: The wardrobe for Eve Kendall, the flick’s femme fatale, was originally chosen by MGM studios. Hitchcock hated the selections so they both headed to Bergdorf’s, where they selected the clothing themselves.
