The American Film Institute's Silver Theatre presents the second in a three-part series this year exploring the works of the great filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Part II focuses on his early Hollywood pictures. Up next two films from 1941: Suspicion, starring Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine, who won an Oscar for her role (watch the sinister glass of milk -- they lit it from the inside to bring attention to it); and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Hitchcock's (disastrous) foray into screwball comedy, starring Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery as an on-again, off-again married couple. Suspicion screens Monday, May 2, at 7:20 p.m.; Mr. & Mrs. Smith screens Monday, May 2, at 5:20 p.m. AFI Silver Theatre, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. Tickets are $11 for each screening.
