Notorious. 1946. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Screenplay by Ben Hecht. 101 min.
With Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Madame Leopoldine Konstantin. Though Alicia Huberman is known for her patriotism, her father has been convicted as a Nazi spy. Alicia is also known for her ability to hold her liquor, and there is some rumor that she is promiscuous—and this shadowy reputation leads an intelligence agent named Devlin to recruit her into a world of South American intrigue. If Alicia can infiltrate the spy ring and seduce its leader into giving up secrets, she will do a great deal for Devlin’s work—and perhaps ensure a chance at true love.
