All time classic!

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία (wiki): North by Northwest is a 1959 American spy thriller film, made in Technicolor and VistaVision, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason. The screenplay was by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write «the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures».

North by Northwest is a tale of mistaken identity, with an innocent man pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization trying to prevent him from blocking their plan to smuggle out microfilm that contains government secrets.

This is one of several Hitchcock films that features a music score by Bernard Herrmann and a memorable opening title sequence by graphic designer Saul Bass. This film is generally cited as the first to feature extended use of kinetic typography in its opening credits.

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία (wiki): The Wrong Man is a 1956 American docudrama film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Henry Fonda and Vera Miles. The film was drawn from the true story of an innocent man charged with a crime, as described in the book, The True Story of Christopher Emmanuel Balestrero by Maxwell Anderson, and in the magazine article, «A Case of Identity» (Life magazine, June 29, 1953) by Herbert Brean.

It was one of the few Hitchcock films based on a true story and whose plot closely followed the real-life events. The Wrong Man had a notable effect on two significant directors: it prompted Jean-Luc Godard’s longest piece of written criticism, and affected Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver.
