    Another great Hitchcock film!

    Hitchcock did it again with this one! It is very suspenseful, keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has great romance in it also. The chemistry between Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman is wonderful. They have a great love/hate relationship in this movie, yet you can tell that the characters truly love each other. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good exciting suspense movie with a great love story mixed in.

    This isn't Psycho, But that doesn't mean it isn't any good or suspenseful...

    Unlike one reviewer, this isn't meant to be scary like Psycho but to be suspenseful like say North by Northwest. It is so good and given the circumstances plausible. It is also very romantic unlike alot of movies today that equate romance with nude scenes that often come across as sterile not romantic or sensual this does it with the clothes on ! One of the best scenes is Carey Grant carrying Ingrid Bergman down the stairs at the end , so don't miss it !!!

    You have to see this one!

    This fantastic Hitchcock film stars Ingrid Bergman as a spy who has to infiltrate an enemy spy ring and expose them. Cary Grant plays the U.S. agent assigned to watch over her. This is a great film with excellent performances from its lead actors. It also features some very suspenseful scenes and a few memorable romantic scenes between Grant and Bergman. Also stars Claude Rains and Madame Konstantin.

    It doesn't get much better than this!

    I could watch it over and over (and I have!). This movie is visually captivating. The eye Hitchcock had for shooting a scene brings to life the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words". The camera brings to us either something it wants us to notice, or watching the actors convey feelings and emotions without saying a word. Bergman and Grant have a smoldering passion on the verge of igniting. Grant is an agent trying to recruit Bergman, whose father was just convicted of being a double-agent, to work on a case in Brazil to infiltrate a ring of German spies led by a man who she has a past with. This movie really keeps the tension going right up to the climactic end.

    If you love classic moives this one is for you. One of the all time best directors, (Alfred Hitchcock) great casting (Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Louis Calhern). Suspense Thriller set during WW II. A must have for the serious collector.

    A suspense Thriller set during WW II. Ingrid Bergman plays the daughter of a convicted Nazi sympathizer who has more love for her country (USA) than for her father. Cary Grant plays the government agent who recruits a reluctant Ingrid to spy on suspected Nazi spy, Claude Rains. The two main charachters are falling in love (Ingrid & Cary) but Cary's job come first so he must hide his emotions. The movie is a classic Hitchcock movie you cannot help but feel the emotions of the players on the screen. Claude rains does such a good job as the evil spy. The ending will have you on the edge of your seat.

    Ultra-Realist

    Notorious is a dry movie. This does not mean it is not a good movie. Hitchcock usually uses the wrong man theory in his films, but in this one, there is an enemy. We know who is bad, but he leaves us in suspense in how the bad guy will get caught. He also leaves chance of how the good guys will not succeed. With Hitchcock, you never know what will happen. There is much drama, or as Hitchcock would call it, melodrama, in this film. This is a story that could have been true, but the the realism is extended. The facts get made extreme. The melodrama allows us to still be able to relate to the film. This is a good film that one should not miss, but again, it is not his best.
