“This image is from a famous scene where ad-man Roger Thornhill has a bad case of mistaken identity and is being hunted by Vandamm (who has sold government secrets) via a crop duster in the middle of a eld on the outskirts of Chicago. Thornhill is believed to be Kaplan, a CIA agent, who was befriended by a fellow agent Eve Kendall (he isn’t made aware of her true identity until after this scene) and is trying to find the ‘real’ Kaplan. Here Roger is led to believe that Eve is sending him to his death and is on the side of Vandamm. ” — Dana Bell
