Crystal clear version of a Hitchcock classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North By Northwest [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
"Mr Kaplin? Come with me, please." This Hitchcock masterpiece of over-direction and over-acting features Cary Grant stumbling from one famous moment to the next. It is a collection of set scenes and lush locations plus some cardboard sets and back-projection. It is in reality the film which set the scene for Bond films with its saucy dialogue and beautiful women. This blu-ray version is sparkling in quality and does full justice to this screen giant. Watch out for James Mason cast as the precursor to Bond villains, purring his way through some sardonic lines. Which scene do you remember? The biplane? The dinner on the train? The auction room? In the lift with his mother and the baddies? Careering down the hill drunk in the car? Climbing the rock-face at the end? Fantastic!
