Pick of the Day: Cinema Tuesdays: North By Northwest

North by Northwest

Texas Public Radio's Cinema Tuesdays series continues with North by Northwest, starring Cary Grant as an ad man mistaken for government operative George Kaplan. Described as “Alfred Hitchcock’s most stylish thriller, if not his best,” by journalist Nick Clooney and penned as “the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures” by screenwriter Ernest Lehman, North by Northwest has it all: espionage, a kamikaze crop-duster, drunk driving, a to-die-for Modernist mansion, microfilm, a chase scene atop Mount Rushmore, and Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint looking fabulous and getting married when the dust clears. $10-$12; 7:30pm Tue, Jul 24; Santikos Bijou, 4522 Fredericksburg Rd, (210) 734-4552, http://tpr.org
