SPECTACULAR NEW RESTORATION!
(1959) “Crop dustin’ where there ain’t no crops;” the art auction disruption; Mount Rushmore; the train going into the tunnel: the classic Hitchcock set pieces just keep on coming as Cary Grant finds a simple case of mistaken identity snowballing into a breakneck cross-country chase, menaced by James Mason and his two-man goon squad, and alternately aided, teased and thwarted by Eva Marie Saint’s double — or is she a triple? — agent. Approx. 136 min. DCP restoration.
“A great film, and certainly one of the most entertaining movies ever made, directed by Alfred Hitchcock at his peak.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
“Hitchcock's ultimate wrong-man comedy.”
– J. Hoberman, Village Voice
