“I’m an advertising man, not a red herring. I’ve got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives, and several bartenders dependent upon me. And I don’t intend to disappoint them all by getting myself slightly killed.” … 
Carey Grant becomes a secret agent against his will propelled at gunpoint unto the highest level of international intrigue and framed for murder. Cary Grant, running for his life, searching for a man who doesn’t exist, and a secret nobody knows and finding a blonde who has all the answers. …

 “Hello there.” “Tell me, why are you so good to me?”

 “Shall I climb up and tell you why?” …

At breakneck speed they race together toward the excitement that lies dead ahead north by northwest. …

“How do I know you aren’t a murderer?”

“You don’t.” …

Carey Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason as the man of sinister surprises. … “Apparently, the only performance that will satisfy you is when I play dead.”

“Your very next role and you’ll be quite convincing I assure you.” …

The perfect setup for suspense with the perfect woman and the perfect crime as Alfred Hitchcock takes you North by Northwest. …
