Ending
Madison Avenue ad exec Roger Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent, George Kaplan, by a gang of spies. (Kaplan doesn't exist; he's a figment of the government to deceive bad guy Vandamm, who we first meet when he pretends to be Townsend, the man who had Roger kidnapped). Roger is supposed to be killed by being pushed, drunk, down a cliff in a stolen car, but manages to drive it to safety (when he's arrested for drunk driving). The cops and judge don't believe his story, he finds the real Townsend, who's killed with a thrown knife. Roger gets his prints on it and is on the run from the cops, meets Eve, a cute blonde who turns out to be the girlfriend of Vandamm that the government recruited to help them catch Vandamm. Lots of chases and stuff, ending in a pursuit down Mt. Rushmore (which I visited in May 2002). Roger manages to save Eve from falling, but the two bad guys aren't so lucky and die (one slips, the other is shot by the professor and his men arriving) by falling down the face of the monument. Roger and Eve end up getting married, and travel by train back to New York (they met on the train from New York to Chicago). Moving film reel
