Only Cary Grant could play Johnny, the main character in “Suspicion,” a charming rogue—or is he much, much more?
Johnny meets the shy, sheltered—and financially well-off–Lina (played by Joan Fontaine). The marriage of opposites follows soon after.
The story starts off light and charming, but as only Hitchcock can do, shades gradually and skillfully into tension, and riveting suspense.
Cary Grant became one of Hitchcock’s favorite leading men. And Joan Fontaine, at the age of 24, won the Best Actress Oscar for 1941 for her role in “Suspicion.”
“Suspicion” plays on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 7:00–all seats are $8.00. Moviegoers are advised to get advance tickets at the box office or online, as shows may sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer. In addition to the regular offerings, The Scene wine/food bar offers tempting food such as panini, flatbread, snacks and salads–and they can all be brought to your seat in the theater.
