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.

Odd that this film is never put in with Hitchcock compilation DVDs, because I think it's in his top five films. Bergman's scenes in this film spoiled me when it came to watching any other actress act. Her vulnerability. Her eyes. Her ability to draw an audience in with multiple --- "Oh, crap! She is in trouble now moments of suspense." The kissing.... Er. If you like Hitchcock, don't miss this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good suspense a la Hitchcock Nov. 17 2013

Put Ingred Berman and Hitchcock together and throw in Cary Grant and Claud Raines for measure and you get an above-avaerage suspense resolving around Nazis post-WWII.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock's best romance/spy/suspense film May 17 2013
By Keith Smith TOP 100 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very soft around the edges for a Hitchcock movie. Nov. 11 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
You should know, if you haven't seen this, that it's a love story with an espionage/intelligence background, rather than a suspense movie with romantic elements. Actually the only suspense revolves around whether Bergman & Grant will ever stop bickering and get together permanently. Espionage-wise...the cast and the audience all know from the start that Claude Rains is a neonazi who's up to something, so the only mystery is "specifically what is he up to?" Not that compelling a question. And the intelligence techniques that are used to find out are aimed toward advancing the love story, at the expense of reality--does Bergman really need to marry Rains to find out who goes to his dinner parties? Couldn't the mysterious intelligence agency that recruits her just have posted a guy across the street to take notes? Bergman and Rains are very good, Grant less so (he plays almost a Gene Hackman character), and Hitchcock--with all due respect--has done a lot better.
