Notorious (1946)

One of the best Hitchcock suspense films ever, Notorious was nominated for two Academy Awards in 1947 and continually ranks among Variety's all time box office champions.  Written and directed by the master of suspense and with a cast including the suave Cary Grant and an enigmatic Ingrid Bergman, the film is a joy to watch.

Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman) gains notoriety when her father, a Nazi spy, is convicted of  treson against the US following World War II.  At a party thrown soon after, Alicia meets a handsome stranger named Devlin (Cary Grant) who reveals after a clash of wits and temperament that he is a U.S. Intelligence Agent.


Because she has fallen in love with the dashing FBI Agent, Alicia is persuaded into helping Devlin trap and catch Nazi mastermind Alex Sebastin (Claude Rains).  The more she gets involved in her work, the more at risk she becomes...



Enjoy! :) xx
