This classic upper-crust comedy is a brilliant adaptation of the Philip Barry play set in the high society of the Philadelphia "Mainline." Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn) is a wealthy heiress in search of romance. Cary Grant plays her ex-husband, and James Stewart won an Academy Award® for his role as the reporter who falls in love with her.
From Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) being chased by the crop dusting bi-plane, to the climax atop the faces of Mount Rushmore, this Hitchcock classic never lets up. Roger, an unsuspecting businessman is mistaken for a spy by a secret agent (James Mason). One of Hitchcock's personal favorites, the film combines a tense, harrowing pace with the fear of calamity lurking behind every door-truly the work of a master.
Based on Joseph Kesselring's hit Broadway play, this madcap comedy is a blend of the bizarre and the mundane. A mild-mannered drama critic (Cary Grant) learns that his two kindly and loveable aunts have been poisoning people with elderberry wine. Two murderers (Peter Lorre and Raymond Massey) move into the aunts' house with the idea of adding a few corpses of their own.
