From today’s perspective, perhaps no other Hollywood actor of the time would have been more convincing as a dangerous predator with tendencies to manipulation, hiding behind the face of a loving and charming captor of women’s hearts, than Cary Grant – a versatile performer with a charismatic face, whose romantic as well as crazy, or even devilish, role suited him perfectly. In the character of Johnnie Aysgarth, he merges all levels into a complex character, shrouded in ambiguity. A psychological drama with elements of gothic romance, it depicts Johnnie’s power attachment to Lina (Joan Fontaine), who marries him for fear of ending up a spinster after a quick courtship. After an initial enchantment, the idyllic marriage and Lina’s inner peace are increasingly destroyed by the gradual revelation of Johnnie’s true self – an unscrupulous professional liar who constantly lives on credit and skillfully shifts responsibility for his own actions onto others.
