I really rather like this movie. I liked all of the plot twists. And, I really like the character, Beaky.

A fairly good Hitchcock suspense film but not terrific, because it just ends which can work in something like the birds but in this it does not seem complete. It is interesting to see where it goes and Cary Grant is the stand out actually because you suspect something from how he acts but he does not give it away either.

The early scenes could be from any other romantic comedy from the golden age, but he uses his usual tools of misdirection, doubt and paranoia to slowly build the suspense until the sweet and innocent Joan Fontaine becomes convinced that her new husband is a murderer intent on killing her for her inheritance. There are some classic Hitchcock moments, the highlight being the way he manages to make a glass of milk menacing and it deals with one of his favourite subjects, namely psychology. To a modern viewer, it seems obvi...
