Johnny Aysgarth (Cary Grant) is a handsome gambler who seems to live by borrowing money from his friends. Whilst travelling on a train in a first class carriage with only a third class ticket, he meets shy Lina McLaidlaw (Joan Fontaine) whom he soon starts to date and before long they marry. Only after their honeymoon does she discover his true character in this film-noir thriller.
A historic masterpiece. This 1941 film appears to be shot in B&W. You are however given the choice of watching in colour. The colours in some scenes are a bit surreal but generally good. Were all the frames individually coloured in? Wow. The plot is very delicately balanced. Is she paranoid or is he a ba***rd? You spend the whole film deciding. By today's standards it is a good film. By those of over 70 years ago it must have been impressive.
