Olivia de Havilland, 100, Opens Up About Her Famous Feud with Late Sister Joan Fontaine

6 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For most of her career, two-time Academy Award winner Olivia de Havilland was embroiled in a rivalrous feud with younger sister Joan Fontaine. Now, the woman who celebrated her 100th birthday last Friday opens up to People about their prolonged estrangement, as she describes Fontaine as "brilliant and very gifted," but essentially flawed. "She was a brilliant person, very gifted and, alas, [had] an astigmatism in her perception of both people and situations, which could cause and did cause great distress in others," she tells People of Fontaine, who died in Dec. 2013 at the age of 96. "I was among those and »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

3 July 2016 6:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“If you’re going to kill someone, do it simply.”

 Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, July 9th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. Admission is only $5

Joan Fontaine won the 1941 Oscar for Best Actress for Suspicion as the heiress who marries cad Cary Grant and then thinks that maybe he is trying to kill her. Cary Grant? Well, what do you think? This Hitchcock movie is one of his most underrated; it’s psychologically taut and it’s very entertaining. Grant’s innocence is hardly ever in doubt, despite the proliferation of red-herrings, but Hitchcock knows which buttons to push to create suspicion not just in Joan but in the audience.

Many thought Fontaine’s Oscar was a sympathy prize for having lost the year »

12 New Movies to Watch at Home This Week on Blu-ray/DVD

11 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs where we check out tomorrow’s new releases today! Suspicion (Warner Archive Collection) What is it? Lina (Joan Fontaine) is worried. It’s bad enough she impulsively married Johnnie (Cary Grant) mere days after meeting him, but now she suspects the love he professes is more interested in her bank account than her heart. Why buy it? In a single word, JoanFontaine. She’s my only b&w crush, but perhaps more relevant to you is the fact that she won an Oscar for her performance — the only one for an Alfred Hitchcock film — and she makes you feel the weight of Lina’s paranoia. Grant is equally memorable here and brings a far darker character to the screen than he’s used to. The movie takes some twisty turns as we move between thinking he’s murderous and she’s nuts. I’m not fully on board with the »

Remembering Oscar-Winning Gwtw Art Director Menzies

28 January 2016 3:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

William Cameron Menzies. William Cameron Menzies movies on TCM: Murderous Joan Fontaine, deadly Nazi Communists Best known as an art director/production designer, William Cameron Menzies was a jack-of-all-trades. It seems like the only things Menzies didn't do was act and tap dance in front of the camera. He designed and/or wrote, directed, produced, etc., dozens of films – titles ranged from The Thief of Bagdad to Invaders from Mars – from the late 1910s all the way to the mid-1950s. Among Menzies' most notable efforts as an art director/production designer are: Ernst Lubitsch's first Hollywood movie, the Mary Pickford star vehicle Rosita (1923). Herbert Brenon's British-set father-son drama Sorrell and Son (1927). David O. Selznick's mammoth production of Gone with the Wind, which earned Menzies an Honorary Oscar. The Sam Wood movies Our Town (1940), Kings Row (1942), and For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943). H.C. Potter's Mr. Lucky »

The Woman Who Knew Too Little in Alfred Hitchock’s Suspicion

15 January 2016 9:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Released 75 years ago, Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion (1941), his fourth film to be made in the United States, was a departure from his previous films. Unlike The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), The 39 Steps (1935), or The Lady Vanishes (1938), Suspicion eschews the globetrotting and spying that made those films so exhilarating. It’s an intimate affair, a chamber drama (or chamber suspense film) primarily led by Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine, only occasionally breached by other supporting actors. Hitchcock had rarely worked on such a minimal scale before; even in Rebecca (1940); the mansion Manderlay was practically its own character. The isolation of Grant and Fontaine’s marriage is suffocating and without precedent in Hitchcock’s filmography. Though flawed due to Production Code restrictions, Suspicion remains one of Hitchcock’s most fascinating experiments.

Joan Fontaine plays Lina McLaidlaw, a woman presumably more interested in books than men (a woman wearing glasses in a »
