North by Northwest (1959)
The masterpiece from Alfred Hitchcock sees Cary Grant in what’s probably his biggest role. Roger Thornhill (Grant), the bewildered advertising executive, accidentally gets mixed up with a high-class criminal organization, which begins to chase him all over the city for no apparent reason. As the plot thickens, the tension rises and what follows is just one of many awesome lines from an all-time Hollywood classic from one of the greatest directors.
Memorable North by Northwest quote:
Roger Thornhill: “Now you listen to me, I’m an advertising man, not a red herring. I’ve got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don’t intend to disappoint them all by getting myself ‘slightly’ killed.”
