From Back Cover:
Outstanding performances, technical brilliance, a great deal of humor, terrific locations for suspense scenes and a great deal of sex."
-Danny Peary, GUIDE FOR THE FILM FANATIC
Cary Grant is the screen's supreme man-on-the-run in his fourth and final teaming with Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock. He plays a Manhattan adman plunged into the realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and, in a signature set-piece, crop-dusted.
He also hangs for dear life from the facial features of Mount Rushmore's Presidents. Savor one of Hollywood's most enjoyable thrillers ever in this State-of-the-Art Restoration: its Renewed Picture Vitality will leave you just as breathless as the chase itself.
Probably my second favorite Hitchcock film, behind Rear Window. It's taut and exciting. Definitely recommended.
