A true classic

by AMC on 5/1/2012

The word classic is thrown around too loosely. To truly appreciate it, I strongly urge you to check out this film. Brilliant production and acting make this film stand out like few other. Read More

YESNO

One of the best BY the best

by Brad W on 2/19/2014

Notorious succeeds not only because of the obvious talents of its director and two leading stars, but also as a result of being the beneficiary of a wonderfully written screenplay by Ben Hecht. The story culminates with about as much romance, suspense, and excitement as any one film can contain. It is one of Hitchcock’s greatest films and that is saying a lot. A masterpiece. Read More

Editors Note
Note NOTORIOUS is Alfred Hitchcock's classic romantic espionage thriller, with passionate, brilliant performances by Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, featuring one of the most famous screen kisses in film history. At the end of World War II, American military intelligence drafts the alluring daughter (Bergman) of a convicted Nazi to infiltrate a band of nefarious Germans who have fled to Brazil. She is teamed with a dashing but chilly agent (Cary Grant) with whom she falls deeply in love. Because of her past, however, the rigid and judgmental agent refuses to trust her--and their relationship falls completely apart when she agrees to marry the ringleader of the Germans (Claude Rains) in order to have better access to information. The marriage touches off an intricate downward spiral of deceit and betrayal, leaving Bergman trapped in the home of an enemy. If her husband ever discovers the truth about her mission, her life will be in mortal danger. Punchy dialog animates this action-driven thriller that maintains its suspenseful drama to the very end.
Plot Summary
Summary South America at the close of World War II provides a steamy microcosm of the European conflict for this tense story of love, deception, and betrayal. The daughter (Ingrid Bergman) of an infamous German spy might be the perfect agent to infiltrate a secretive band of Nazi emigres, but does her past guarantee her commitment or compromise her loyalty? Romantic tension grows between Bergman and the American agent played by Cary Grant, but he cannot overcome his suspicion of her. With her choice to marry the group's evil ringleader, Claude Rains, Bergman may alienate Grant completely just at the time when she needs him the most.
