Many feel this is Alfred Hitchcock's greatest American movie, and I agree! NORTH BY NORTHWEST is the Hitchcock film...
Thornhill meets friends at the 21 Club, a well-known American cuisine restaurant and former Prohibition-era speakeasy. It is located at 21 West 52nd Street, New York City.
The moment I meet an attractive woman, I have to start pretending I have no desire to make love to her.
Eve Kendall: What makes you think you have to conceal it?
Roger Thornhill: She might find the idea objectionable.
Eve Kendall: Then again, she might not.
When Thornhill is in the phone booth at the train station in New York, the exterior shot shows the phone has a coiled cord. When it switches to the interior shot, the phone cord is a straight wire.
