In the 1940s, it was common for movies to be adapted into radio plays. This movie was adapted six times from 1942 to 1949, starring the original actors and actresses: once on "Academy Award Theater", twice on "Lux Radio Theater", and three times on "Screen Guild Theater". See more »

Oh, I beg your pardon. Was that your leg? I had no idea we were going into a tunnel. I thought the compartment was empty.

A colorized version of the film was produced. It has been available on VHS (Turner Home Entertainment) in NTSC format for a while. A dual black & white/colorized Region-2 DVD version has been released in 2003 by Universal in PAL format. See more »
I'm surprised so many people are disappointed with this movie. It doesn't seem to me more unreal than any other Hitchcock film. As always, the highlights are those moments when we get a glimpse of someone doubting what someone else is saying. This movie specializes in such moments and, inasmuch as doubt is Hitchcock's stock in trade, I can't find anything wrong with SUSPICION. It's playful, scary and, yes, escapist. Hitchcock never made a realistic movie, and I thank him for it.
