North by Northwest (1959)- Cary Grant’s brilliant escape

On TCM today 10/22/16-I love the scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest (1959) where Cary Grant with his usual humor and charm makes a brilliant escape via the local police from the dangerous James Mason and Martin Landau with Eva Marie Saint at a Chicago auction house by making illogical bids on art objects and yelling out “It looks like a fake.” One of the other bidders looks at Cary: “Well one thing we know. You’re no fake. You are a genuine idiot.”
