Description by OLDIES.com:
Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion slyly combines romance, mystery and atmospheric flourishes (like an eerie, glowing glass of milk, an effect achieved with a light bulb inside the glass). Joan Fontaine plays vulnerable, nerve-wracked Lina, following her acclaimed work in Hitchcock's Rebecca with a striking performance that won the Academy Award and New York Film Critics Award as 1941's Best Actress. Playing against type, Cary Grant makes Johnnie an imposing charmer, wastrel and cad. But also a killer? Like the glass that may or may not contain poison, Johnnie's words and deeds may or may not be laced with menace.
- Hitchcock cameo: Hitch mails a letter at the village mailbox about halfway through the film.
- Hitchcock put a light inside the glass of milk that Cary Grant carries upstairs to focus the audience's attention.
- An RKO producer screened the print in Hitchcock's absence and deleted all scenes that suggested Cary Grant might be a killer. The head of RKO realized the 55-minute film was ludicrous and restored the chopped scenes.
- The film was remade for television in 1987, starring Jane Curtin and Anthony Andrews.
