I Confess is a 1953 drama film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and starring Montgomery Clift as Fr. Michael William Logan, a Catholic priest, Anne Baxter as Ruth Grandfort, and Karl Malden as Inspector Larrue. Biographers say Hitchcock had trouble with "method" actors such as Clift and Paul Newman, who worked with him in Torn Curtain. In the book-length interview Hitchcock/Truffaut, Hitchcock said he had hired Anita Björk as the female lead for I Confess, after seeing her in Miss Julie. However, when she arrived in Hollywood with her lover and their baby, Warner Bros. insisted that Hitchcock find another actress. The film is based on a 1902 French play by Paul Anthelme called Nos deux consciences, which Hitchcock saw in the 1930s. The screenplay was written by George Tabori. Filming was done largely on location in Quebec City with numerous shots of the city landscape and interiors of its churches and other emblematic buildings, such as the Château Frontenac.

J. Rath and its 1926 Broadway adaptation They All Want Something by Courtenay Savage. In the movie, the lines "What a family!" said twice seems to indicate the screenwriters acknowledgment of the earlier movie What a Man.

Sylvia Scarlett is a 1935 romantic comedy film starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, based on The Early Life and Adventures of Sylvia Scarlett, a novel by Compton MacKenzie. Directed by George Cukor, it was notorious as one of the most famous unsuccessful movies of the 1930s. Hepburn plays the title role of Sylvia Scarlett, a female con artist masquerading as a boy to escape the police. The success of the subterfuge is in large part due to the transformation of Hepburn by RKO make-up artist Mel Berns. This film was the first pairing of Grant and Hepburn, who later starred together in Bringing Up Baby, Holiday, and The Philadelphia Story. Cary Grant's performance as a dashing rogue sees him incorporate a Cockney accent and remains widely considered the first time Grant's famous personality began to register on film. Cockney was not, however, Cary Grant's original accent.
