A pair of 1930s Hitchcock suspense films produced in his native England features brain-twisting plot turns in THE 39 STEPS and the screwball-mystery hybrid THE LADY VANISHES, following the search for an elderly woman who's disappeared on a moving train.
Catherine Deneuve is at her best as the title character, an orphan left in the care of libertine aristocrat Don Lope (Fernando Rey), who seduces the woman, setting her on a path to bitterness and manipulation.
1941's SUSPICION stars Joan Fontaine as a woman who suspects husband Cary Grant is trying to kill her. It's followed by 1969 Cuban missile crisis thriller TOPAZ. The final night of our comprehensive 2-part Hitchcock retrospective at the Aero!
