North by Northwest by Ernest Lehman

Hitchcocks best-loved romantic thriller is one of the most influential works ever made in the genre - an enticing cocktail of suspense, comedy, eroticism and danger.

Roger Thornhill is a suave but stiff-necked Madison Avenue executive, who finds himself mistaken for a US intelligence agent, and dragged into life-threatening escapades. His consolation is that he gets to romance an elegant female spy, but he soon learns that the game of international intrigue is played for high stakes. Ernest Lehman provides an introduction to this souvenir volume, published to coincide with the centenary of Hitchcocks birth, in which he describes the course of his cherishable collaboration with the master of suspense.

The story begins with Roger Thornhill, a successful advertising agent in New York, dictating a letter to his secretary as they walk through his office building. Roger proceeds to The Plaza Hotel, where he has a business meeting. Once there he signals a pageboy, who is asking after "George Kaplan," and is mistaken for George Kaplan by two thugs standing nearby. Roger is immediately abducted by the two men who believe him to be Kaplan. They take him to a remote mansion on Long Island where he is questioned by a soft-spoken man claiming to be named Townsend.

Suave, witty, and charming Roger Thornhill is an advertising executive who seems perfectly happy with his breezy and boozy New York life.
you getting mad and i m getting rich

directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Thornhill escapes, but must find Kaplan in order to clear himself of a murder it is believed he committed. In Chicago, she delivers a message to Kaplan that almost costs Thornhill his life when he is chased across a cornfield by a crop-dusting plane. When he survives, he slowly decides to get to the bottom of all this in order to survive this whole mess that he was dragged into. Revealing mistake : In the shooting scene in the Mount Rushmore cafe, a boy in the background puts his fingers in his ears, because he knows the gun is about to be shot. Roger Thornhill : Oh, nothing. He wasn't allowed to shoot the front of the UN.

He uses his classic innocent man wrongly accused plot, and takes it all across the country. He is mistaken for a nonexistent government agent named George Kaplan, and because of this he is kidnapped, force fed an entire bottle of bourbon, and then made to drive home. He drunkenly leaves the Townsend house, but is understandably picked up by the police. This sets him on a quest to figure out why these people believe he is Kaplan, and why they are persecuting him so vigorously. He starts by trying to track down Kaplan, and while this leads him to his hotel room, he is absent. He then tries to track down Townsend, who works at the UN.
