Film still from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Suspicion” (00.04.22)
Private collection of Hal Rammel
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Written by Samsonn Rafaelson, Joan Harrison, and Alma Reville.
A newspaper photographer for the society page (Donald Stuart) attempts
to capture a shot of playboy Johnnie Aysgarth (Cary Grant) at a high
society horse riding event but Johnnie is clearly distracted when he
sees Lina (Joan Fontaine) arriving on horseback, This is their second
encounter after their first coincidental meeting in a train
compartment. The poor frustrated photographer never gets his shot but
this is our first indication that Johnnie is very taken with Lina and
we’re inclined to feel a bit suspicious of his reactions. From there
the plot is off and running.
