I now believe this is my favorite Joan Crawford and Fred MacMurray movie. They work well together, neither being so overbearing as in their other movies. They made me believe they really liked each other. I wish they had made a series of spy movies together as husband and wife doing what they can against the Nazis!
Not Above Suspicion,But Enjoyable
Can't see Fred married to Joan,but otherwise 2 Yanks in England good.It really gets going once we meet Count Basil and his mum and the Gestapo.Then,hold on for the ride of your life!
A Good Detective Remark
- Chris R
Love the comment on Sig making a good detective.Circa the So-so Universal Holmes series,I love seeing them,but hardly A #1.This is fun fare,murder/torture/intrigue galore.Break out the popcorn.
No Swashbuckler,but Good Caper
- Dave R
Fred and Joan out to investigate disappearance of British agent providing intelligence with honeymooners sent to find why the line went cold.They meet with old friend Sig,are unsure about Veidt's true cause,and everything's high drama.I always enjoy this movie.Nice songs and voices.
Fred and Joan Good Singers,Fair Agents
Nasty Nazis,good supporting cast (love my Basil).
Spys Like Us Not Above Suspicion(1943)
Joan Crawford and Fred McMurray trapes across Europe in order to obtain info on a Nazi device. Well, sending these two into pre-war Germany is like sending Chris Rock to a clan meeting. Obvious distractions and a clumsy script add to the dilemma. All Star cast includes Conrad Veidt, Basil Rathbone who are above suspicion, being more Europeon than any American. Watch for star power and interesting chemistry.
Above Suspicion (1943)
- Mr. Blandings
Starts out promising but quickly turns into a boring affair not helped by all the convoluted "clues" the couple follows.
Buy this movie!
- Kimberly Banks
This is a wonderful movie. I bought it years ago on VHS based solely on the synopsis on the back cover. I am not particularly a huge Joan Crawford or Fred MacMurray fan, but I am a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock. If you've ever seen Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much and enjoyed it, then Above Suspicion is a must-see. The level of suspense is comparable to that of Hitchcock movies and there are several plot elements that mirror some of those found in The Man Who Knew Too Much (cue cymbals or piano, whichever you prefer.) This is definitely a movie you'll enjoy having in your video library. You won't be disappointed.
Great Joan Crawford Movie !!!!!!
- Drew W
This is is a great movie to watch, It's old fashion spy thriller. You will love This Movie, especially if you are a fan of Joan Crawford. This movie is her farewell performance for MGM, and its fabulous. I only wish it would be released on DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched it a long time ago and been waiting for it to come out on Dvd. If you are a Joan Crawford Fan, this film you'll add to your collection.
