New York advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is lunching with clients in the Plaza Hotel when a pageboy calls for George Kaplan; Thornhill’s wave at the waiter is mistaken for a reply by two henchmen waiting to kidnap Kaplan, and the adventure begins. Thornhill is dragged across America and seduced by Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) on a beautiful train ride (he is trying to get away), only to be betrayed.
The pursuing villain, Phillip Vandamm (James Mason), is part of the cold war furniture, aided by a closet gay Leonard (Martin Landau), who has taken the secret agency bait – planted by The Professor (Leo G. Carroll) that Kaplan is a master spy, and is trying to get rid of him. But Eve Kendall is a double agent, and Thornhill is a naive innocent.
