1001 Classic Movies: Love and Marriage Hitchcock Style


The great director Alfred Hitchcock is known as the master of suspense, but many of his movies also featured marriages as part of the plot. 

Mr and Mrs. Smith (1941): This is Hitchcock's only screwball comedy. It's about the complications that arise when a couple (Robert Montgomery and Carole Lombard) finds out their marriage isn't valid.

Rebecca (1940): A socially awkward newlywed (Joan Fontaine) must deal with the lingering presence of her aristocratic husband's first wife in this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's novel.

Rear Window (1954): A photographer (James Stewart) and his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) become amateur sleuths after they seem to witness a neighbor (Raymond Burr) killing his bedridden wife.

Suspicion (1941): A shy young woman (Fontaine) begins to suspect that her husband (Cary Grant) is trying to kill her.

The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956): An American couple (Stewart and Doris Day) become enmeshed in an assassination plot while vacationing in North Africa.
