High Rating for Hitchcock film

September’s screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest” proved popular with the audience, who gave it an average rating of 4.2 out of 5, although one viewer obviously did not enjoy it as much, rating it only 1! Most of us found it entertaining, well-scripted, typical Hitchcock, with lots of tongue-in-cheek references and just enough humour to balance the taut story-line. And what a climax, with heroes and heroines and villains slipping and sliding on the Mount Rushmore monuments! One film that deserved the tag “classic”.
