2UE That Movie Show

The iconic actors give memorable performances, the story is perfectly pitched and fiercely clever and under the astounding directorial eye of Alfred Hitchcock - American Cinematic God - it's nearly flawless.

Witty Hitchcock thriller. Not for little ones.

... one of those great movies that cannot withstand the barest amount of scrutiny - it is the sort of movie movie that can exist only because we are willing to collaborate with its directors and stars. Fifty years on, it keeps on ticking.

Of course, the hallmark of North by Northwest is the way in which Hitchcock develops tension.

The picture is hugely pleased with itself, but it's too funny and expertly calibrated to mind in the least.

Daily Express

The velvety villainy of James Mason, the crop duster chase and the thrilling finale scrambling around Mount Rushmore are just part of the pleasure in a classic that deserves to be seen on the big screen.

North By Northwest is still a classic, coming as it does during Hitchcock's most creative period, but it lacks that extra little taste to make it truly great.

Hitchcock succeeded in wanting to give popcorn munchers a movie to smile at. And he was never this playful again.

At times it seems Hitchcock is kidding his own penchant for the bizarre, but this sardonic attitude is so deftly handled it only enhances the thrills.

Anthony Quinn

Cary Grant's suave adman Roger O Thornhill finds himself in mortal peril as the innocent man-on-the-run, yet the tone throughout is buoyantly, almost insolently, comic.

Hitchcock breezes through a tongue-in-cheek, nightmarish plot with a lightness of touch that's equalled by a charming performance from Grant.

A diverting adventure, but in truth, a little precious... Not my favorite of Hitch's later films.

Viewer friendly, refreshingly undated, and worth as many repeat viewings as one can stomach.

It has all the classic elements of a Hitchcock film - well timed suspense, an overall mystery, a compelling cast and some brilliantly conceived scenes.
