“North by Northwest” is such an awesome film. Our cinema appreciation teacher wasn’t a very creative man, so he used a pretty bog-standard list of classics, and this was on it. I’m not complaining. Because I probably wouldn’t have been exposed to this movie if not for that class.
Scouting NY is a cinema-themed blog maintained by a New York City location scout. This is part of a series he calls “New York, You’ve Changed” where he looks at how New York City has evolved over the years by comparing scenes from older films to modern location shots.
