"North By Northwest"
I told Kitty that we should watch the Hitchcock classic "North By Northwest" since the final thrilling climax happens at Mt Rushmore which we'll be visiting next month as part of our great eclipse trip. When I went to Netflix to put the dvd into our queue, I was shocked and dismayed to see that it wasn't available! Not just not available because it was checked out but not available PERIOD! How could such an American classic not be available on dvd?!? On a whim I decided to check Turner Classic Movies to see if it would be shown sometime in the near future. SCORE! It was not only available in the near future, it was going to be shown THAT NIGHT! Talk about fortuitous! We recorded it and watched it last night. It truly is an American classic. I also pointed out to Kitty the most blatant sexual innuendo of the time when Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint are about to engage in sex but the camera cuts away to a shot of a train going into a tunnel. The end.
