About the Film

Perhaps Alfred Hitchcock’s most stylish thriller, Notorious is a white-knuckle tale of high stakes espionage starring Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains.

When the daughter of a convicted Nazi spy (Bergman) is recruited by a government agent (Grant) to infiltrate a sinister group of Nazis down in Rio de Janeiro, it’s business as usual for the seasoned agent. But when Grant falls in love with Bergman, he is torn between love and duty.

Forced to push the woman he loves into the arms of the enemy, Grant watches helplessly as Bergman marries into a powerful and dangerous Nazi family. When Bergman's husband becomes suspicious that his wife is actually a spy for the U.S. government, Grant must find a way to rescue her before it’s too late.

Featuring sumptuous sets, stellar performances, and exquisite cinematography, Notorious is a sophisticated spy thriller that showcases the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, at his best.
