Cary Grant was one of the most coolest guys to ever live. Classic.
An immensely influential film on the action genre, but is so rich in nuance that it hardly deserves to be called just an “action” film.
Great Action & Suspense. Cary Grant shines in this Hitchcock classic.
I wasn't a huge fan of the ending. But this is an amazing cat and mouse thriller regardless. Top notch.
Great suspense film. Just saw it for the first time, and I was literally on the edge of my seat in parts. (Reasonably corny in other parts.)
Might be the best drama Cary Grant starred in. Solid action and nice plot twists to keep you guessing.
An Era defining classic. Cary Grant is iconic and may even charm away a beloved Bond girl.
Another Hitchcock classic about espionage, betrayal and amazing scenes. Totally worthy to watch.
Dialogue is witty & Grant may be at the apex of his charm in this classic Hitchcock film. But there’s not much tension or suspense in this.
