The Hollywood-style happy ending was imposed on Hitchcock by the studio.

Alfred Hitchcock's trademarked cinematic development of suspenseful drama, through mental emotions of the story principals, is vividly displayed in Suspicion.

The disappointingly neat coda has led to the dismissal of the film as second-tier Hitchcock, but up to that ending, the critique of marriage is so provocative, the imagery so powerful, and the acting so good that it's extremely enjoyable to watch.

Everyone concedes that this 1941 Hitchcock film is a failure, yet it displays so much artistic seriousness that I find its failure utterly mysterious.

Despite a silly cop-out ending (imposed by RKO), a gripping domestic thriller.

...a middle-tier Hitchcock product, not really as suspenseful as it should be and never as romantic or humorous as it could be.

The director does some wonderful things with the picture up until the ludicrous ending. Still you can't help feeling a vague disappointment with the whole enterprise.

The film isn't close to Hitch's best, but it's a critical part of his canon that shouldn't be missed.

Probably the most compromised of Hitchcock's major pictures, it nevertheless sports a trio of sequences that rank among his best.

Hitchcock piles on the tension in the way that only he knows how, skilfully building to the sensational finale.

Good, but not entirely satisfactory Hitchcock opus.

The beauty of it is that it starts off light and charming, and darkens so gradually you won't even notice it shift from light romance into a psychological thriller.

Mr. Hitchcock is probably the most artful sophist working for the films -- and anyone who doesn't think so should see Suspicion.
