Alfred Hitchcock directs this classic American thriller starring Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine. Spinsterish Lina McLaidlaw (Fontaine) lives in an English manor house with her wealthy parents, and never has any suitors. That is, until the charming Johnnie Aysgarth (Grant) sweeps her off her feet and proposes to her. The couple are soon married, despite opposition from Lina's father, but Lina becomes suspicious when Johnnie lies to her about losing his job. When Johnnie's friend Beaky (Nigel Bruce) dies mysteriously after losing interest in a real estate deal they were planning together, Lina suspects Johnny of murder, and comes to believe that she will be his next victim.
