It's pure escapism, and as such is very entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Above Suspicion

A strong cast (top 16 certainly hit their marks) with good pacing (competent direction & editing) makes this as much an entertaining thriller as a chick flick. I suspect the lighthearted adventurous tone (loosely wrapped as a honeymoon) was done on purpose. Many families had more than one loved one in the service as this film was released. Making the war effort seem a "fun adventure" helped the women to send their men off more cheerfully. The heavy-hearted reality for each community would soon hit home as some servicemen earned purple hearts.

I have seen this film more than once. I believe I saw it when it first came out. The scene when Joan Crawford stops to adjust her shoe stayed with me. This is entirely entertaining. Worth watching.

Surprisingly enjoyable movie from the 1940s, surprising only in that I'd never heard of it before. Joan Crawford here is more likeable than she normally is. Suspenseful.
