We’re finally reviewing North By Northwest, one of the greatest films ever made and many say Hitchcock’s greatest film.
There’s so much to say and so much has already been said about this movie. Maybe we’re not breaking any new territory here with this review but we sure have fun talking about it.
There’s the action, the drama, the subtle and not so subtle comedy, the romance, the suspense, not to mention the incredible direction, script, acting, set design, cinematography and score.
We decided to give the movie the love it deserves and go through scene-by-scene. We only get through the first 46 minutes in Part 1. We’ve already recorded Part 2 and we’ll have that out in the next week.
We’ll be back next episode to wrap this up and then we have a special five movie marathon planned of Robert Wise films.
It’s going to be a great couple of months of movies!
Oh and I mention the TV series Space: 1999, which Bob says he hasn’t heard of… which is surprising, so here’s a link to the IMDB page for that show. A true classic, especially season 1, season 2 goes a bit off the rails! But in a fun way.
Bob mistakenly says “Leonard Nimoy” instead of “Martin Landau” because Mr. Landau’s character’s name is Leonard, but it’s not such a strange slip up because apparently the two actors were friends.
