Hitchcock: Suspicion

on BBC One London

The second of four films for the festive season from the master of suspense, tonight starring Cary Grant, Joan Fontaine

Sensitive society girl Lina McLaidlaw marries popular man-about-town Johnnie Aysgarth. At first they are happy but, when she discovers he is an embezzler and perhaps a murderer, she begins to fear for her own life. This was the first film that Grant made with Hitchcock and it provided him with one of his finest roles. Equally memorable is Joan Fontaine, who won an Academy Award for her performance as Lina.
(The next Hitchcock film is "Under Capricorn" tomorrow at 2.10pm on BBC2)
