A theatre marquee displays "North by Northwest" (1959) playing, which premiered 1 July 1959 in Chicago, 17 July 1959 in Los Angeles, and 6 August 1959 in New York. The end of the movie shows Maja, Lewis, and Patrick attending an Independence Day celebration (4 July). Unless the year is 1960, "North by Northwest" would not be exhibited. See more »

This is an enjoyable thriller. Fairly original storyline and good performances from the three leads who take around 80% of the screen time. Slow paced, and it has to be for the story to unfold, some unpleasant scenes, which again are needed. I would have marked the film 8 if not for the very predictable last scene before the epilogue, still a good thriller though.
N.B I haven't seen 'Death And The Maiden' which comparisons are made in other reviews so my review is unbiased and about this film.
