I noticed something last night when I glanced at a North by Northwest frame capture. It was the date on a newspaper — 11.25.58 — being read by one of Leo G. Carroll‘s alphabet soup cronies about Roger O. Thornhill being wanted after knifing a UN diplomat. Every last scene in Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1959 film, shot in Manhattan and Long Island’s North Shore and Chicago and Illinois and Rapid City, makes it clear that the weather is quite warm — shirtsleeves and light jackets, no coats or scarves in sight. So there you are.
To my knowledge this is the second significant wrongo spotted in Hitchcock’s film, the first being the kid plugging his ears in advance of Eva Marie Saint “shooting” Grant in a Mount Rushmore cafeteria.
