Cast. Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains.
Two of the most iconic and powerful stars of their day pair up in Hitchcock’s post-war spy thriller, film noir with just a dash of screwball dialogue and some serious romance and the results are electric. Bergman and Grant star as Alicia and Devlin; a woman whose father was a convicted Nazi spy, and who hopes to make reparations for his crimes against the US by engaging in espionage herself. One of Hitchcock’s most critically acclaimed films for both its romantic as well as narrative maturity, Notorious is a defining notch on his well earnt strapline as the master of suspense. Infamous for its clever evasion of the Motion Picture Production Code’s restriction on screen kissing, Hitchcock had the characters pull away every three seconds, only to resume kissing, for a total of two-and-a-half minutes.
