Marvin Paige Remembered
Actor Martin Landau In Person!

In honor of his birthday, we remember the legendary casting director Marvin Paige with a classic film favorite, Alfred Hitchcock’s NORTH BY NORTHWEST.

Join us at 4:30 PM for a pre-screening reception courtesy of Midcentury Productions in the lobby. Film starts at 5:30 PM. Discussion following the feature with actor Martin Landau, moderated by Foster Hirsch.
1959, Warner Bros., 136 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Cary Grant gives one of his greatest performances as womanizing executive Roger Thornhill, whose cozy life of afternoon cocktails is turned upside down when he’s mistaken for an elusive government operative by suave villain James Mason and his murderous crony, Martin Landau. Eva Marie Saint co-stars as Mason’s elegant mistress, with the wonderful Jesse Royce Landis as Grant’s fur-clad society mom ("You gentlemen aren’t really trying to murder my son, are you?"). Includes some of the most superb set pieces ever filmed - from a seemingly innocuous cornfield to the monolithic Mount Rushmore. Brilliantly scripted by Ernest Lehman (THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS) and photographed by veteran Hitchcock collaborator Robert Burks (STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, REAR WINDOW).
