Robert’s Reviews: North by Northwest

Hello Clever People! Welcome to my review for Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece of action/adventure North by Northwest. This iconic classic follows Cary Grant as he is faced with having to run away from his past life after going through one insane night that changed his life forever. This changed the landscape for action/adventure films, and inspired many filmmakers from there on out. Thanks for watching!

    I have this movie on my shelf and never tire of watching it.  I am old but am glad that young people enjoy this classic.  A classic made without computer programing.

    Great movie.  Too bad they don’t make more like that now!

    Robert, love that besides reviewing new releases you are also reviewing the classics. Hitchcock movies are some of my favorites.

    Hitchcock, without a doubt is one of my favorites.  I loved Psycho so much, I’ve really gotten into the Bates Motel TV series.  Sad to see this is the last season.  I loved Cary Grant growing up and enjoyed all his movies.  So North by Northwest was one of my favorites.  I also admire you for doing these reviews at such a young age.  I think it’s GREAT!
