Bill-The Suspect (1944) - I think it is significant that Ella Raines was a graduate
from Washington. Too many of today's actors grace the screen with good looks but
little else. Ms. Raines had both substance and theatrical presence. Overlooked by
the academy awards perhaps because of her conservative views.

sailed on to freedom and happiness, but we are talking about when men had morals

Terry-The Suspect (1944) - Rubber-faced, Laughton the master of subtlety and nuance
is totally believable as the paramour of one of Hollywood's most beautiful actresses.

Phil-The Suspect (1944) is laden with suspense and unexpected turns and surprises
all the way to the end. Considering that it's based on the premise of a man murdering
his wife and the psychological motives that drive him to it, it is surprising that
it is rated so highly by IMDb readers, and also that it received the same rating
(7.5) from male and female respondents. I wouldn't have guessed that. Maybe today's
viewers are more adult than I had a reason to expect? As in Dostoyevsky's Crime and
Punishment, we identify and sympathize with the suspect (Charles Laughton)and want
him to get away, while those who uncover the crime, police inspector Stanley Ridges
and blackmailer Henry Daniell, are mostly despicable . . up to the very end. The
scene in Which Ridges re-creates the crime for the purpose of drawing out Laughton
is one of the great moments in noir film. American actress Ella Raines fits in perfectly
with the early 1900's London scene. A masterful job by screenwriter and director.
