    I read this as an introduction to screenplays, and found that I enjoyed it better than the movie! The wit and humor are often lost in the action, and Lehman is a masterful writer. I also found out what a diverse career he has had, writing screenplays for movies like North by Northwest to The Sound of Music. Cool! I loved this.

    Lately I have been reading an increasing number of screenplays; of films I've loved, films I've hated, and films I've never seen. I'll admit that I am reading them with educational purposes in mind, but that doesn't preclude the basic enjoyment of a good story.This one falls into the category of films I've loved: my favorite Hitchcock film.

    If you are looking for an example of a tightly plotted script with snappy dialogue then North by Northwest is what you should read!

    Great movie too, albeit too heavy on the romance.
