Trivia: Hitchcock had two cameo appearances in the movie Suspicion: the first takes place right after the opening scene where Johnnie and Lina meet on the train, when Johnnie and friends are gathered for a 'photo op' just prior to the start of the 'hunt'. You see Hitchcock shortly after that scene walking with a horse past the camera. He is to the left of the horse and is wearing a cap and light colored jacket. The second cameo shows Hitchcock, albeit from a distance and not easily identifiable and ever so briefly, posting a letter at a mailbox in town.

Trivia: Alfred Hitchcock's cameo occurs about 47 minutes into the movie. When Mrs Newsham parks her car outside the post office, Hitchcock can be seen putting a letter into the postbox.

Trivia: Joan Fontaine won a Best Actress Academy Award for her role as Lina McLaidlaw Asygarth in this film. This is the only Oscar-winning performance in an Alfred Hitchcock film.

Continuity mistake: When Johnnie and Lina arrive back from their honeymoon, they decide to have tea and cake in their new home. Johnnie picks up the tea pot and starts to pour the tea, but then he picks up the tea pot for a second time and starts again to pour the tea.
