Summer Classics: Notorious says
1946 / 1h 41m / Not Rated / Film Noir

You could, if you wanted to, divide Alfred Hitchcock’s career as a director into two halves: before Notorious, and after it. He is firing on all cylinders here, putting together the first movie in his filmography that has all of the visual hallmarks of later Hitchcock; he famously storyboarded every shot completely, and it shows. Some of the most famous shots have names: The Kiss, The Key, The Hangover. That’s putting aside the taut, thrilling story itself — Ingmar Bergman as a suffering woman, recruited by a spy she loves (Cary Grant) to manipulate an enemy who loves her. Unbelievable cinematography, a gut-punch of a screenplay; Notorious is a master class in tension and suspense.

USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of Notorious immediately after the film. The session is free and open to the public.

The Summer Classics Movie Series is presented by Bank of America. Media support is provided by WEDU-PBS.
