Rich, sheltered Joan Fontaine is swept off her ft by charming ne’er-do-well Cary Grant. Although warned that Grant is little greater than a fortune-hunter, Fontaine marries him anyway. She stays loyal to her irresponsible husband as he plows his manner from one disreputable enterprise scheme to a different. Progressively, Fontaine involves the conclusion that Grant intends to cast off her to be able to acquire her inheritance…a suspicion confirmed when Grant’s likeable enterprise associate Nigel Bruce dies beneath mysterious circumstances. To his dying day, Hitchcock insisted that he needed to retain the novelist Francis Iles’ authentic ending, however that the RKO executives intervened. Fontaine gained an Academy Award for her work.
