As the first in our series of Classic Movie kisses, it seems only fitting that we feature a film starring two of Hollywood’s most enduring, classic sex symbols – Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. The 3 kisses in this clip are from Alfred Hitchcock’s masterful suspense/thriller/love story “Notorious“.
Here is the film’s synopsis from the Criterion Collection:
In Notorious, a brilliant allegory of love and betrayal, Hitchcock fuses two of his favorite elements: suspense and romance. A beautiful woman with a tainted past (Ingrid Bergman) is enlisted by American agent Devlin (Cary Grant) to spy on a ring of Nazis in post-war Rio. Her espionage work becomes life-threatening after she marries the most debonair of the Nazi ring, Alex (Claude Rains). Only Devlin can rescue her, but to do so he must face his role in her desperate situation and acknowledge that he’s loved her all along. Stunning performances, Ben Hecht’s excellent script, and Hitchcock’s direction at its best make Notorious a perfect film.
