Notorious is one of Hitchcock's most darkly romantic, disturbing and suspenseful thrillers.
Ingrid Bergman is magnificent as the tough yet vulnerable Alicia Huberman whose father is sentenced to death for treason, leaving her determined to prove her patriotism and atone for his guilt. Cary Grant is devastating as debonair US agent Steven Devlin, who's torn between his love for Alicia and his distrust of her. She is enlisted to seduce Alex Sebastian (Claude Rains), a sophisticated German expatriate, to find out about his suspected Nazi affiliations. Madly impassioned by Alicia, Sebastian even marries her against the wishes of his tyrannical mother and before long all three are entangled in a web of constrained desire and cruel deceit
