Notorious*

  • 1946 ----- b & w ----- 101 min ----- laserdisc
  • (Directed by Alfred Hitchcock; with Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Louis Calhern) Notorious returned Hitchcock to the world of spies and counter-spies. But the film primarily is a study of relationships rather than a straight thriller--which is not to say that there still isn't a great deal of Hitchcockian suspense. The Bergman character is trying to forget, Grant is cynical, and Rains has a genuine, devoted love for the leading lady. Even when he discovers her treachery, it is her mother who makes the decision to, shall we say, do away with her.
