Reviews
Mine: A good Hitchcock with some brilliant sequences. The crop dusting is the best of the movie. Well done, just not one of Hitchcock's best.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Quintessential Hitchcock comedy-thriller, with bewildered ad-man Grant chased cross country by both spies (who think he's a double agent) and the police (who think he's an assassin). One memorable scene after another, including now-legendary crop-dusting and Mount Rushmore sequences; one of the all-time great entertainments. Witty script by Ernest Lehman, exciting score by Bernard Herrmann. VistaVision.
