Overview

Adapted by Norman Krasna from his play Kind Sir, Indiscreet stars Ingrid Bergman as a wealthy actress and Cary Grant as an international financial wizard. While Grant is visiting London, Bergman's sister Phyllis Calvert and brother-in-law Cecil Parker introduce Grant to Bergman. Because he feels he has no time for marriage, Grant pretends to be married to avoid romantic tangles. Bergman, however, finds the prospect of an affair with a married man to be quite exhilarating. When she discovers the truth, Bergman gets even with the now-smitten Grant by faking a romance with an ex-boy friend--ordering luckless chauffeur David Kossoff to pose as her beau. A comedy by grownups, about grownups and for grownups at least by 1958 standards, Indiscreet proved to be far more successful as a film than as a stage play.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Known at the time almost exclusively for directing and choreographing musicals, Stanley Donen did a fine job bringing 1958's Indiscreet to the screen. The tone and the scenario would have fit a musical quite well, but when you have Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant -- two of the most talented, attractive, and intelligent movie stars ever -- you don't bother with production numbers. Adapted by Norman Krasna from his own play, the material is clever and edgy (especially for the time) but pretty standard romantic comedy fare. Grant and Bergman, who had previously starred together in Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious, elevate the film to particularly satisfying fun. Playing in the slightly risqué Indiscreet was a risky choice for Bergman, who had just recently (with 1956's Anastasia) been accepted back into American films following her affair with, marriage to, and then divorce from filmmaker Roberto Rossellini. Grant had begun to show his age a bit, as had Bergman, but he was still working steadily as the archetypal leading man. Indiscreet was the second of four movies that he made with Donen in a six-year period: Kiss Them For Me preceded it, while The Grass is Greener and the lovable Charade followed.

    Hysterical!

    Bergman and Grant are the original Gere and Roberts - I've seen this movie countless times and it never fails to crack me up!

    Excellent

    I really enjoyed this movie from start to finish. I especially enjoyed Cecil Parker (plays the King in Court Jester) in this movie. The only problem with the movie is the music. But that, I guess, is to be expected since its an old movie.
