All About Eva Marie Saint in "North by Northwest"

Happy 100th birthday to Eva Marie Saint. A class act, on-screen and off! Here's my look at one of her best, 1959's "North by Northwest." Her bad girl/good girl Eve Kendall is one of the best Hitchcock blondes. Saint's smart and sexy persona pairs perfectly with Cary Grant. My take on Eva as Eve in "NBNW":

Everyone remembers the red and black dress she wore.

Eva looks chic, Cary looks dapper, and the wonderful Bernard Hermann score helps to keep things rolling along.

It’s one of the most entertaining films ever made. If I’m flipping channels and I see it on, I stop whatever I’m doing and watch it.

When I went to Mt. Rushmore, I went to the cafeteria just so I could reminisce about the smart, classy, entertaining film that is NBNW.

For anyone who watches TCM, she's the star of the month for July, every Thursday evening...

This is possibly my favourite film, if I had to name one. Eve Kendall was sexy to even young gay me. And then the men...

It's satisfying in so many ways but mostly visually.

I especially love the corny ending with the train entering the tunnel.

I love nearly all of it except that phony driving scene when Cary is supposed to be drunk and he is obviously in front of rear screen projection.

I find her sexless. Same with Kim Novak and Vera Miles. Tippi Hedren was sexy-ish, but too stiff. Grace Kelly…she was sexy as hell. Couldn’t act for shit, but she was sexy. Hitchcock could never replace her, though he tried.

I'm wondering about my earrings.

Here's Eva Marie Saint with Robert Osborne at the TCM Film Festival a decade ago...

She has a small part in [italic]Winter's Tale[/italic]. I was so happy to see her again.

R10 Vera Miles was sexy when she was an ingenue in Hitchcock's TV show episode "Revenge".

EMS was so awful in GRAND PRIX - I just have to look away......

She was so relaxed and appealing in that movie. I loved her Osborne interview. Her husband was in the audience and you could tell how close they were. 100 years old. Wow.
