About the Program

Saul Bass’ title sequence set the tone of this Alfred Hitchcock midcentury classic thriller. Played out in city, country, and even Mt Rushmore, Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint play a dangerous game of cat and mouse (1959, 136min). Screened in tandem with Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism.
