Notorious

In this Hitchcock classic, a never-more-gorgeous Ingrid Bergman plays Alicia Huberman, the daughter of a well-known Nazi, reluctantly enlisted by FBI agent Devlin (Cary Grant) to spy on her father’s former colleagues now working in Brazil. Despite his feelings for her, the ever-professional Devlin asks her to seduce Sebastian (Claude Raines), leader of the Nazi group.
