Phillip Vandamm is the most malevolent villain in Hitchcock history.After trying to lull the beautiful Eve Kendall, and trying to get on to the plane, a maid shoots at Roger with a gun filled with blanks.
Roger takes hold of Eve and they run towards the Mount Rushmore monument. They climb down closely followed by Vandamm and his right hand Leonard. Eve and Roger think they're safe, but Vandamm appears and tackles Roger. They roll down and it appears that Vandamm has Roger pinned. As Vandamm is trying to stab him, Thornhill resists with all his might, and he gains enough brute force to push Vandamm, causing the villain to lose his balance and fall off of the monument. Vandamm is screaming as he falls and, in true Hitchcock style, the camera switches to Thornhill before we can see what tree Vandamm is impaled on.
