Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of Alfred Hitchcock's classics, this romantic thriller features a cast to kill for: Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant, and Claude Rains. Bergman plays the daughter of a disgraced father who is recruited by American agents to infiltrate a post-World War II spy ring in Brazil. Her control agent is Grant, who treats her with disdain while developing a deep romantic bond with her. Her assignment: to marry the suspected head of the ring (Rains) and get the goods on everyone involved. Danger, deceit, betrayal--and, yes, romance--all come together in a nearly perfect blend as the film builds to a terrific (and surprising) climax. Grant and Bergman rarely have been better. --Marshall Fine

Having already reviewed the wonderful film "Notorious" this review deals with the DVD releases in question. Reading the reviews praising Criterion Collections "great acheivement" over Anchor Bays "bare-bones" release lit a fire under me. The fact is most re-viewers even those with high-end equipment came to DVD direct from VHS land. DVD is their first experience with Criterion releases.
I, for better and for worse, was part of the 1 percent of the population who ventured into the world of high tech video and the Audio-Video receiver and sound system, years before anyone had heard of DVD, with the Laserdisc. The Criterion Collection (formerly the Voyager Collection) put out very expensive editions of Classic films on Laserdisc for years and the results to say the least were mixed. Part of the problem was that Laserdisc technology steadily improved over its 20 plus year run and studios like MGM were able to best many of Voyager/Criterions releases with stronger more colorful releases over time. Others discs were, frankly, just average releases being sold at inflated prices, so inflated in fact that I picked many out of bargain bins. Having collected over 200 titles on Laserdisc, not counting multiple copies of some titles I came to DVD with both good and bad examples of Criterions work over the years.
Now having seen the Criterion Collection as well as the Anchor Bay versions of "Notorious" I cannot believe some of the reviews praising the Criterion editon are genuine. The opening credits of "Notorious" are windowboxed, making them almost minature even on a large screen moniter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock's best romance/spy/suspense film May 17 2013
By Keith Smith TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This review is for the MGM version of Alfred Hitchock's "Notorious" Blu-Ray Cat# M125249 UPC 839904-25249 obtained in 2013.

5 stars as a romance, 4 stars as an espionage suspense thriller.

With Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant, supported by Claude Rains, this movie is considered to be Hitchcock's most romantic movie, very erotic for its day.

Complex characters, each containing both admirable and detestable characteristics, great acting, lots of suspense.

This is a movie most women will really really love, while still being very entertaining for men.

This version has a good restoration of the B&W film and has plenty of extras.

On TV and even in theatres, films are generally shortened to allow more showings and more profits. Also on standard definition TV the quality is never as high. Good reasons for buying a DVD or blu-ray.

For me the extras (supplements) are the main reason to purchase a DVD or blu-ray rather than watching on TV. Typically I don't go through all the supplements right away, I work through them over a few weeks.

In this case the supplements are a "film study course in a box" just like one usually gets with the Criterion Collection blu-rays (maybe even better), but at a lower cost.

- Commentary by film professors Rick Jewel.
- Commentary by film professor Drew Casper (who holds the Alma and Alfred Hitchock chair of film studies at UCLA).
- The Ultimate Romance: The Making of Notorious [definitely watch this].
- Alfred Hitchcock: The Ultimate Spymaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Hitchcock's finest ever June 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Top-notch espionage thriller with all-star cast consisting of :
Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains. With a very similar plot to the much later made Mission Impossible II
it has the daughter (Bergman) of a man convicted of treason living in Miami and a debonair secret agent (Grant) spying on her and trying to convince her to help the United States goverment in capturing some spies that her father worked with during World War II. One of the spies "just happens" to be an "old flame"(Rains)who still wants to marry her. Of course by the time they (Grant and Bergman)get to Rio de Janeiro (where the spies are in hiding) they have inevitably fallen in love with each other. Bergman marries Rains, the "old flame" spy to get closer to him and find out anything important. But eventually Rains finds otu that she and Grant are American agents and he starts trying to poison her. Then Devlin finds out and comes to the rescue,. Being a gem of a movie that I highly reccomend, I think you will enjoy it immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably Hitchcock's best Sept. 19 2002
Format:DVD
Sure, we hear about "The Birds," "Psycho," "North by Northwest," "The Man Who Knew Too Much," and "Vertigo" until our ears bleed, but Hitchcock never surpassed the passion and intrigue he pulled off in this one. An excellent cast led by Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains; love scenes hotter than any of the semi-nude sax-underscored things we get today (sometimes just the sound of Bergman breathing); and a solid nail-biter plot make this one of his very best.
Fans who prefer the platinum blandness (sic) of Kim Hunter, Grace Kelly, or Tippi Hedren may not be satisfied: Ingrid Bergman actually has some fire! Cary Grant was better only with Katharine Hepburn, and really shines here with his portrayal of a prejudiced, tough as nails special agent who must team up with a woman whose past he is so revolted by that he can't see the forest for the trees until it is nearly too late.
The Criterion edition has some very impressive special features, and is a must-have for Hitchcock fans.
