Synopsis

The ultimate Hitchcock ?wrong man" movie. A never better Cary Grant is a top level ad exec who finds himself embroiled in international espionage after lethally charming villain James Mason mistakes him for a spy on his tail. Bouncing from one superbly executed set-piece to another, Hitch never lets the audience pause for breath in what became the template for summer blockbusters. Dialogue to die for, a sublime Eva Marie Saint, and bags of fun make this an audience pleasing masterpiece. Grant being pursued through an ominous prairie by a crop duster remains cinema's perfect hunted man image.
