Hell! Okay. Hmm. Young Cary Grant. By a nose. By his nose, in fact. Damn, I don't know.
North by Northwest. It is a complete film whereas Arsenic and Old Lace was a slightly awkward transition from stage to screen. By 1959, Cary Grant had reached the summit of his stardom and the image of him running for his life from a maniacal crop-duster (looking spectacular in the world's most durable grey suit) forever cemented himself as an icon of the cinema.
For all its zaniness, Arsenic and Old Lace stills manages to be a somewhat boring movie. North by Northwest, though overlong, is never boring.
