North By Northwest
Yes, North By Northwest is the movie I handed to you guys on a platter. I get a message from dad that says, "Wow! Easy clues. I have been off the internet for a day and a half. Been to Casper early today and just got back. The movie is North by Northwest. I would have gotten it with the Teddy Roosevelt looking clue." I couldn't help but laugh. YES! Easy clues indeed. Although, looks like this film is color. I swear I've seen it in black and white, so I don't know what's going on there. But I have a hard time believing that would have thrown anyone off if the other clues made sense to you. Have you guys not seen this? It is arguably Hitchcock's finest film (and #40 on the list AFI's 100 years, 100 films). Cary Grant plays a business man that is mistaken by some thugs to be a spy that has something on their boss. So this innocent man is thrown into a big mess that is suspenseful and really good action, especially for the time. Watch it! And I'm going to watch it again.
I mentioned that pop's did indeed get the right answer. Unfortunately for you pops, you spent 22 minutes too long in Casper, cause Dan pieced it together by the clues just before you got on the computer. That would be it! That would be all the guesses I even got. Kids Were All Wright peeps are S-L-E-E-P-I-N-G this week!
