Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine are perfectly cast in Hitchcock’s classic psychological thriller.
Dir Alfred Hitchcock
With Cary Grant, Joan Fontaine, Nigel Bruce
Famous for an iconic glass of milk, Hitchcock’s psychological thriller about a shy, naive young woman (Fontaine) who comes to suspect that her charming husband (Grant) is not as he seems, and may even be harbouring thoughts of murder, benefits from perfect casting and nuanced lead performances. Fassbinder brought his own sensibility to bear on a sadomasochistic marriage in Martha.
