A case of mistaken identity leads to murder, mayhem, and the ultimate thrill-ride.

Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is a simple advertising executive going out to lunch when a couple of thugs pick him up and force him into a car, thinking that Thornhill is really a man named George Kaplan, supposedly in possession of a secret microfilm canister that the U.S. government and rival political factions are after. Narrowly escaping death, Thornhill is on the run from good and bad alike on a race against time to clear his name.

Alfred Hitchcock interweaves a cast of dubious characters (including James Mason, Martin Landau, and Eva Marie Saint) with some of the most exciting and memorable screen chases in film history. Be sure to catch this classic the way it was meant to be seen, on the big screen, with a full house, and on 35mm.
