Sippican Cinema Series to feature ‘North by Northwest’

Mar 9, 2021

MARION — Join Anne Converse and the Sippican Historical Society on March 29 at 5 p.m. for the next installment of the Sippican Cinema Series — a discussion of Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest” 

The classic suspense film finds advertising executive Roger O. Thornhill (played by Cary Grant) pursued by ruthless spy Phillip Vandamm (played by James Mason) after Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent.

Hunted by Vandamm's associates, Thornhill ends up on a cross-country journey, meeting the Eve Kendall (played by Eva Marie Saint) along the way.

Soon Vandamm's henchmen close in on Thornhill, resulting in a number of iconic action sequences.

North by Northwest is available to rent on Amazon Prime video and Netflix. Participants are expected to watch the film on their own in order to participate in the discussion. 

New participants can email to receive the Zoom link — previous participants are already on the email list.
