A Hollywood Failure
Last week I watched Hitchcock's "North by Northwesr". For an espionage/psychological thriller it wasn't very fast paced. Toward the end when he was upstairs and wanted to get her attention, he threw a book of matches fifteen feet out and fifteen feet down to land at her feet? Not in the least a believable event, one that the whole story relied on being taken as, oh yeah sure, to be sucessfull. As a dart player, I know the shot's impossible. And in the beginning just when his troubles were beginning, he never asks the police to verify what happened at the hotel bar? That he'd mysteriously disappeared while talking shop with friends? Too far for this dog to fetch (far fetched).
