THE STORY
While having lunch at the Plaza Hotel in New York, advertising executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) has the bad luck to call for a messenger just as a page calls out for a "George Kaplan." From that moment, Thornhill finds that he has stepped into a nightmare -- he is abducted by a pair of armed men and transported to a Long Island estate; there he is interrogated by a mysterious man (James Mason) who, believing that Roger is George Kaplan, demands to know what he knows about his business. Thornhill must discover who this man is who abducted him and who George Kaplan is and why they want him killed. Along the way he meets the coolly beautiful Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) who may not be all she seems to be. His journey for answers will lead him to some of the most iconic places in the U.S. including the United Nations, Mount Rushmore and an encounter in a field with a deadly crop dusting plane.
