I was a little disappointed with this Hitchcock movie. For my taste, there was far too much dialogue, and not enough action. Also, I found it to be rather predictable. I feel he made so many better ones, like Rear Window, North By Northwest, Psycho, etc. It was okay, but not great.

I will use this space to say that some reviews give the plot of a movie away. If they don't give the entire plot, is may be enough to make the movie seem boring. I try to say whether I liked or disliked a movie and why. We are not asked to explain the movie or to give key details out. Let's make seeing a DVD a fresh experience. I loved Notorious. Thought Ingrid Bergman was great as an heiress and Cary Grant as an American agent. It is one of Hitchcock's better films. I give it Five Stars and hope in the future reviews will stick to just an "UP" or "Down" method of reviewing movies.

This is a 1946 American thriller directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock.
Ingrid Bergman plays Alicia Huberman, a daughter of a convicted Nazi spy.
Cary Grant plays an American agent T.R. Devlin who infiltrates an organization of Nazi based in Brazil after World War II.
Alicia is now enlisted by Devlin to spy on the Nazi secret ring.
While awaiting the details of her assignment in Rio de Janeiro, Alicia and Devlin fall in love, though his feelings are complicated by his knowledge of her wild past.
When Devlin gets instructions to persuade her to seduce Alex Sebastian (Claude Rains), Devlin tries to convince his superiors that Alicia is not fit for the job.
He puts up a stoic front when he informs Alicia about the mission, choosing duty over love.
Alicia concludes that he was merely pretending to love her as part of his job.
Her espionage work becomes life-threatening after she marries Alex---the most debonair of the Nazi ring.
Thrill, suspense and love---but not sex---certainly make you exciting and trembling.
This is one of the best entertaining flicks.

Although a repeat performance for me this is still excellent. Love Cary Grant and have seen many of his movies. He is just great and to be paired with Bergman wellll!

Right up there on Hitchcock's "A" list with the biggies, (Vertigo, N. by N.W., etc.), yet somehow not as widely talked about as it deserves. Intense suspense from the master of it, with a romantic pairing of two icons who could carry a Hefty bag and make it smell like roses. Ingrid really shines here (Cary was great, too). And Claude Rains' mother was scarier than the Gestapo. FIVE STARS.

A perfect movie! The romance between Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, without bedroom scenes and nudity, is one of the most sensual in movie history.

Alicia: "Dev, is that you? I'm glad you're late. This chicken took longer than I expected. I hope it isn't done too much. It caught fire once..."
