• In this Hitchcock film I wanted suspense and maybe some murder. There is some suspense with fast cars on the small roads, the cliff edges maybe being pushed and glass of milk carried up the stairs. Of course it all happens, and the iridescent milk is fantastic but rather than suspense there is more romance and comedy. Cary Grant is great and amusing, the lovely Joan Fontaine is okay although she really needed to be someone rather plain for this part. She just acted as if she was a bit dim because it is just so easy for Grant although we get to think it is a bit silly. Nigel Bruce just makes it even more funny but that is what we don't need. So its all okay and you know that Hitch is smiling up his sleeve as we think that it is all so clever as it is or not if we are still with the story.
