Art and Experience: U.S. movie icon Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 thriller “North by Northwest” will go on screen at the Iranian Artist Forum in Tehran today.

Film critic Shadmehr Rastin is also scheduled to review the movie that recounts a story of New York City ad executive Roger O. Thornhill who is pursued by ruthless spy Phillip Vandamm after Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent.

Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, “North by Northwest” is often listed as one of the greatest films of all time.
