North by Northwest – The Review Show 293

We run from a bi-plane right into a discussion on Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 thriller North by Northwest! Roger Thornhill is caught up in a web of espionage and danger after he’s mistaken for a secret agent, and this humdrum advertising exec has to play the action hero to get out of this conspiracy alive. We share our experiences going to the Fathom Events theatrical screening for this movie’s 65th anniversary, its influence on spy stories, the surprising amount of humor, unconvincing makeout scenes, and Kyle’s galaxy brain theory about how the main characters are dead at the end of the movie.

The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a book club style podcast covering a variety of genres and mediums including movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, and even audio fiction. Join your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
