Cary Grant weaves a web of deceit on hapless wife Oscar winner Joan Fontaine in Alfred Hitchcock’s suspense classic: Suspicion (1941).

Following in the footsteps of Rebecca, his award winning American debut, it’s a marvelous showcase for the two stars, offering Grant one of the most unusual roles of his long career. Sporting a cast of wonderful character actors including Cedric Hardwicke, Nigel Bruce, Dame May Whitty and in a wonderful role as an eccentric mystery writer, Aureol Lee, it’s vintage “Hitch” and not to be missed!  Steve Hayes

No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart

Kevin Fret, the openly gay Puerto Rican rapper, is dead. He was 24.

Fret was shot eight times in San Juan. “There are no words that describe the feeling we have and the pain that causes us to know that a person with so many dreams has to go," his manager, Eduardo Rodriguez, said. "We must all unite in these difficult times, and ask for much peace for our beloved Puerto Rico … He still had a lot left to do.”
