Cary Grant, now there was a movie star. Didn't we all love him? And who didn't like Hitchcock thrillers? Put them together and you have a very exciting thriller with darling Cary Grant called "North by Northwest" (1959).
You know who else likes this movie? None other than Richard Armitage himself! As quoted in an article by Natalie Graham in the Financial Times:
Natalie: What is your money-saving tip in hard times?
Richard: I would have a good night in with a bottle of wine and a DVD of a classic film, like Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, one of my favourites.
Here is a trailer for the movie:
Now we can either take that little tidbit of interesting information for what it is, a little fact about himself that he felt free to share with us. Or as some of us fans like to do, we could interpret this statement to mean, perhaps he is putting it out that he would like a Cary Grant-like role. I, for one would think he would be perfect in such a role. Maybe even a remake of this very movie! Can't you just picture it?....
