Cary Grant in his most powerful role as a wastrel husband intent on riches at any cost..Joan Fontaine in her first since "Rebecca", as the bride whose love turned to terror! Completely compelling mystery romance! See more »
The strangest of coincidences haunt newly-wed Joan Fontaine (Oscar-winning) in this sleight of hand from Alfred Hitchcock. She starts to believe that husband Cary Grant may be too good to be true. It appears that he may be a heartless murderer who may be targeting her as his next victim. Hitchcock, the undisputed master of suspense, does not let the audience off easy here. The film's twists and turns will keep you glued until the stunning final act. Not without flaws, but still another winner from Hitchcock. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
