Film description

Two of the most iconic and powerful stars of their day pair up in Hitchcock’s post-war spy thriller, film noir – with just a dash of screwball dialogue and some serious romance – and the results are electric. Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant star as Alicia and Devlin; a woman whose father was a convicted Nazi spy, at the behest of a handsome government agent who also just so happens to be falling in love with her.   

One of Hitchcock’s most critically acclaimed films for both its romantic as well as narrative maturity, Notorious is a defining notch on his well earnt strapline as the master of suspense. An official selection of the 1946 Cannes Film Festival, Notorious was one of the biggest US film releases of that year and has become infamous for its clever evasion of the Motion Picture Production Code’s restriction on screen kissing. Limited in Hollywood to three seconds at the time, Hitchcock had the characters pull away every three seconds, nuzzling each other only to resume kissing, for a total of two-and-a-half-minutes. 

Presented as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery.
