Cary Grant, a martini-sodden advertising director, awakes from a middle-class daydream into an underworld nightmare when he’s mistaken for a secret agent (1959). A great film, and certainly one of the most entertaining movies ever made, directed by Alfred Hitchcock at his peak. With Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, and Leo G. Carroll.
