Suspicion (1941)

RKO
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Cast: Cary Grant, Joan Fontaine, Sir Cedric Hardwicke, Nigel Bruce, Dame May Whitty, Isabel Jeans, Leo G. Carroll

Cary Grant's first film for director Alfred Hitchcock, and the first of four to follow, introduced a sinister Grant to film audiences. In it Grant plays a possible killer, making his newly married wife, Joan Fontaine, apprehensive. Is he or isn't he is the constant fear in her mind. The famous scene where Grant brings her a glass of milk at her bedside, which may or may not be poisoned, torments Fontaine to no end. RKO would not let Grant be a killer, so a happy ending was tagged on in which everything was explained away. Grant loved working with Hitchcock and did a good job at being menacing. Joan Fontaine's histrionics won her the Oscar for Best Actress of 1941.
