North By Northwest DVD - Just The Good Stuff North By Northwest ranked # 40 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.

North by Northwest is a 1959 MGM thriller by Alfred Hitchcock and is generally considered one of his best works.

The screenplay was written by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write "the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures".

Alfred Hitchcock planned the film as a change of pace after his dark romantic thriller Vertigo a year earlier and said that he wanted to do something fun, light-hearted, and generally free of the symbolism permeating his other movies.

Despite its frothy appearance, the movie carries a number of underlying themes, the most important being that of theater and play-acting, wherein everyone is playing a part; no one is who they seem; and identity is in flux.
