A hapless New York advertising executive is mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies, and is pursued across the country while he looks for a way to survive.
While waiting for Phillip Vandamm (James Mason) and Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) at Mount Rushmore, Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) says he doesn't like the way that Teddy Roosevelt is looking at him. In Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), Grant plays Mortimer Brewster, whose brother thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt.

Roger Thornhill: She might find the idea objectionable.
Eve Kendall: Then again, she might not.
In the scene after the auction, where Roger is taken into a police car, we clearly see that the inner parts of the car are mostly brown. However, in the following scene, where they arrive to Northwest station, the inside of the car is clearly gray.
