Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #76 - North by Northwest


Welcome to our 76th cinema challenge, where this week's movie challenge is the 1959 Oscar nominated movie starring the smooth and debonair Cary Grant: North by Northwest. This adventure movie is filled with spy intrigue, romance, humor and Alfred Hitchcock genius! If you haven't seen it yet - you must - this is a classic movie - with one of the all time classic movie scenes with the crop dusting plane. This week's movie challenge is to add some paper piercing to your cards that are inspired by some aspect of the movie :) We hope you will play along with us!

Brooke's Card Inspired by the movie: North by Northwest
Are you ready for another Alfred Hitchcock... That usually mean a cat and mouse chase.. This time it's a 2,000 mile chase for Rodger Thornhill(Cary Grant). Rodger is taken mistaken for a CIA agent when he tries to make a phone call to his mother.. Rodger is kidnaped my a group of fugitives and then is forces to be part of a 2,000 mile chase. He is helped along the way by a lovely lady named Eve. He has a long journey via trains, cars, and plains.. He is even chased down by a crop duster in a corn field. This chase all ends up in the black hill of South Dakota at Mount Rush more.
When I was doing a little research I noticed in my picture file that a year ago was our last Alfred Hitchcock move.. It's been far to long...

I got my inspiration from the first thing that came to mind from memory (the crop duster scene) It has Cary Grant in it that's why I remember the scene. He is really Dreamy... It's been a long time sense I have seen this movie I was surprised how much I had forgotten about it. It was great to watch this movie again.. There are lost of elements to get inspiration in this movie.. Hope you have a great time watching this classic with the hunky Cary Grant... Ahhhhh!


hugs,
Brooke

Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: North by Northwest
I remember watching this movie while snuggling in between my mother and father and totally loving the Hitchcock suspense and thrill factor. After watching it now - I simply adore Cary Grant's smoothness - seriously - the man is some delicious eye candy :) (and even though George Clooney sometimes is known as a modern day Cary Grant - there is nothing like the original (that is not to say that if George Clooney walked in the door that I wouldn't faint :)). I love the way the movie starts and the journey that we are taken on is just awesome. I picked the sentiment: Enjoy the Journey - because I always feel like even in the craziest situations that Cary Grant is thrown into - he is still so smooth and makes you feel like its still okay :)
My card has bit more of a mod feel to it then I usually do - but I liked the simple lines and arrows and am excited to give it to my friend who is graduating next month (yay - a man card! :) Can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations and would love to hear your favorite part/lines from the movie!!!

Sending you all big big hugs!!!
Sankari :)
