Synopsis

Roger Thornhill is a twice-divorced advertising executive based in New York City who cares only for himself. When he’s apprehended by suspicious figures, Thornhill soon realises he’s being mistaken for another man by the name of George Kaplan. These foreign agents, led by the nefarious Phillip Vandamm, attempt to neutralise the apparent threat of Thornhill before the police get to him. And after he’s suspected of and wanted for murder, Thornhill must evade authorities and agents alike as he attempts to stay alive and uncover the truth, with the help of a mysterious woman by the name of Eve. This espionage thriller from Alfred Hitchcock plays upon fears and uncertainty around the Cold War, as well as containing some of the most memorable set pieces in cinema history.
