Where NORTH BY NORTHWEST moves into deeper territory is on the question of identity. Not only is no one else who you thought they were, but you yourself are not who you thought you were. Yet in Hitchcock’s hands such a weighty existential theme sounds like the best time a guy could have.

Hitchcock’s early chase films had a zest he has never been able, or perhaps wanted, to recover. But the immense calculation that has gone into this film, the cheap joke so carefully timed, the suspense effect so gloatingly delayed, is the mark of the ultimate in professionalism. And there is something to be said for a film that never puts a foot wrong without making one feel that even the false step is a deliberate one.
