Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest (1959) was supposed to be a Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures. Cine lovers know it did not; rather it became a new template to view the eternally intriguing story of crime, spaces, mistaken identities, accidents in life, incognito runs, bare wide fields,
attacks by insidious agencies of life, therefore what else but an attack on the hero by a crop duster plane, and a narrative that could end only as consummation in a tunnel. The film became a commentary on flight and fantasy, discrete spaces and links, which could be bridged only by a narrative.
