    • Alfred Hitchcock and Ernest Lehman were first brought together by M-G-M to make a film of Hammond Innes's best-seller The Wreck Of The 'Mary Deare', but, after a lot of thought, they both decided the novel could not be turned into a successful film and told M-G-M so. Despite these expert deliberations, the company went ahead with plans to film the Innes book, and a movie version was in cinemas within a few months of North By Northwest's opening. Directed by Michael Anderson, The Wreck Of The 'Mary Deare' was, as Hitchcock had predicted, not a success.
