Alfred Hitchcock
Released:
1946
Rating:
Not Available
Notorious is Alfred Hitchcock's classic, suspenseful 1946 thriller about three people who become entangled in a dangerous espionage case-and a love triangle. The tightly wound plot follows government agent T.R. Devlin (Cary Grant) who recruits Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman), daughter of a convicted Nazi, into an operation to infiltrate a group of Nazis who escaped to Brazil after the end of the war. Devlin and Alicia fall for each other but their happiness is short-lived. Devlin's superiors order him to have Alicia seduce Alex Sebastian (Claude Rains), a leader of the Nazi group. Devlin resists but his superiors overrule him and he gives Alicia the order. Believing that Devlin never really loved her, Alicia becomes involved with Alex, who soon proposes. The intrigue only deepens from here, with both Devlin and Alicia finding their lives in danger and their mission in jeopardy. Notorious is widely considered one of Hitchcock's finest and most mature films.
