L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 4: 1965 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: FACULTY & "NORTH BY NORTHWEST"

MY SELECTION NO. 4 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES" IS
"NORTH BY NORTHWEST"
STARRING "CARY GRANT", "EVA MARIE SAINT", AND "JAMES MASON"!!



North by Northwest is a 1959 American thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason.[2] The screenplay was by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write "the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures".[3]

North by Northwest is a tale of mistaken identity, with an innocent man pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization trying to prevent him from blocking their plan to smuggle out microfilm that contains government secrets.

This is one of several Hitchcock films that features a music score by Bernard Herrmann and a memorable opening title sequence by graphic designer Saul Bass. This film is generally cited as the first to feature extended use of kinetic typography in its opening credits.[4]

North by Northwest is now numbered among the essential Hitchcock pictures and is often listed as one of the greatest films of all time.[5][6][7] It was selected in 1995 for preservation in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress, as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
