Capturing a Golden Moment #8: North by Northwest

In this series I'd like to present some exceptional scenes inspired by cinema's most gifted artists of yesteryear.


North by Northwest (1959)

Director: Alfred Hitchcock

Scene: "The Auction"

Cary Grant cleverly gets himself out a jam in one of the master's best exercises in suspense courtesy of Ernest Lehman's ingenious, original screenplay and the cast's perfect performances.
