It’s just after WWII and a number of Nazis have been tracked down to Brazil. Grant plays a US spy who persuades the American daughter (Bergman) of a convicted Nazi criminal to infiltrate the group – one of whom (Rains) was a friend of her father’s. The resulting romantic tangle features great chemistry between our leads, and an ingenious way of dealing with the Production Code’s ban on kisses longer than three seconds. With the winning combination of Grant, Bergman and Hitchcock, Notorious might just be a perfect film.
