Notorious (RKO 1946, Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman)

Published

on


In Notorious, one of the most stylish works by the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock, American agent Cary Grant gets the assignment to watch international playgirl Ingrid Bergman, whose father is a Nazi sympathizer.

He soon realizes she abhors his beliefs and they begin to work in tandem, an assignment that means she must marry Nazi agent Claude Rains in Rio despite their mutual attraction. When Rains becomes suspicious of Bergman, he begins slowly poisoning her, and Grant comes to the rescue. The intricate plot revolves around Rains’s hoard of uranium, a top-secret material at the time, and a plot point that earned writer Hecht and Hitch an F.B.I. tail during production.

This also features one of Hitchcock’s greatest shots, the descending crane shot from the top of a grand staircase to the key to Rains’s wine cellar held tight in Bergman’s hand.

Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Screenplay; Best Supporting Actor: Claude Rains.
