“The most elegant expression of the master’s visual style.” —Roger Ebert
Graced with one of the best-looking couples in screen history —and arguably Hitchcock’s finest film of the 1940s—Notorious is the torrid tale of a troubled woman (Bergman) coerced by an American agent (Grant with Harlem style) into helping ferret out Nazi war criminals in South America. In many ways, a precursor to the dark, tangled relationships of Vertigo, featuring the director’s most celebrated MacGuffin—just what is Claude Rains keeping in his wine cellar?
