Alfred Hitchcock’s SUSPICION: 80th Anniversary!
(1941, 99 min)
Handsome, charming Johnnie (Cary Grant) is a worthless cheat, so when he marries Lina (Joan Fontaine), the naïve daughter of a wealthy retired general (Sir Cedric Hardwicke), everyone except Lina believes Johnnie is only after his wife’s inheritance. But when Lina discovers that Johnnie has stolen money, his business partner dies mysteriously–and she finds a letter explaining her life insurance policy—love changes to suspicion!

Followed by:

(1940, 120 min)
Crime reporter John Jones (Joel McCrea) is turning in nothing but dull copy. His editor, unhappy with his work, hopes a change of scenery will be the thing Jones needs to get back on track. Re-assigned to Europe as a foreign correspondent, Jones is very much out of his element. When he stumbles on a spy ring, he feels ill-equipped to unravel the truth alone and he seeks help from a beautiful politician’s daughter (Laraine Day) and an urbane English journalist (George Sanders).
