Synopsis >

Selected as one of the top 50 American films of all time by the prestigious American Film Institute, and considered by many critics to be Hitchcock's greatest film, this fast-paced thriller stars Oscar-winner Cary Grant (Notorious, The Philadelphia Story) as a Madison Avenue advertising exec who is mistaken for someone else and kidnapped by a group of international spies, headed by James Mason (A Star Is Born, Lolita). After a hair-raising escape, he is framed for a murder he didn't commit and goes on the run with the lovely Eva Marie Saint (Superman Returns, On the Waterfront). Famous for a wild plane attack and a harrowing chase across the faces of Mount Rushmore, this is quintessential Hitchcock (Psycho, The Birds). With Academy Award-winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, The Majestic) as Mason's evil henchman, this film is the rare combination of action, suspense and humor.
