A naive heiress (Joan Fontaine) falls hard for dashing playboy Johnnie Aysgarth (Cary Grant), but there’s something sinister about her new beau. Is he only after her inheritance? Just how far would he go to claim it for himself? Layering charm and menace, Cary Grant’s first performance for Hitchcock stands among the best of his career.

This screening will be presented in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Andrew Owen, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
