Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

United States 1946 101 mins.

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. Crushed by what she perceives as Devlin’s rejection, Alicia marries Sebastian and goes to work uncovering the Nazi smuggling ring operating out of Sebastian’s house—but at what cost to herself? “Frank, tense, well-acted, with an amazingly suspenseful climax (and one memorably passionate love scene).”—Leonard Maltin.
