Adapted by Norman Krasna from his play Kind Sir, Indiscreet stars Ingrid Bergman as a wealthy actress and Cary Grant as an international financial wizard. While Grant is visiting London, Bergman's sister Phyllis Calvert and brother-in-law Cecil Parker introduce Grant to Bergman. Because he feels he has no time for marriage, Grant pretends to be married to avoid romantic tangles. Bergman, however, finds the prospect of an affair with a married man to be quite exhilarating. When she discovers the truth, Bergman gets even with the now-smitten Grant by faking a romance with an ex-boy friend--ordering luckless chauffeur David Kossoff to pose as her beau. A comedy by grownups, about grownups and for grownups (at least by 1958 standards), Indiscreet proved to be far more successful as a film than as a stage play. … More

Critic Reviews for Indiscreet
A fine light comedy, with unexpected passages of seriousness, marked by the Donen touch in its adventurous visuals and vivacious performances.
A beguiling love story delicately deranged by the complications of sophisticated comedy, Indiscreet is an expert film version of Norman Krasna's 1953 stage play, Kind Sir.
Here the New York setting gave way to Mayfair, and Donen piled on the civilised charm.
One of those rare movies that is far better than the play from which it was adapted.
Da sequência que acompanha o casal principal se apaixonando até a ótima cena final com seus divertidos desentendimentos, o filme jamais deixa de funcionar, beneficiando-se ainda da elegância e do carisma de Grant e Bergman.
Sophisticated Donen boasts star power of Grant and Bergman.
A classy romantic comedy that's also touching and poignant. Another successful Grant/Bergman union.
Slick, stylish romantic comedy
Audience Reviews for Indiscreet
Director Stanley Donen manages to concoct an elegant comedy out of an extremely mundane screenplay. It all comes down to seeing the stars from Hitchcock's "Notorious" together again - this time older, but still two of the most beautiful and charismatic faces in film, only much more suave and bubbly and without the complex layers of self-destruction from the previous film. Ultimately, Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman are the only reason to justify watching this film nowadays. It's interesting to see Bergman tackling with some comedy and boy, Cary Grant can sure dance.More
I really need to see this movie again, I barely remember it, but what a great combination: Grant and Bergman. I remember this being a really good movie.More

- I can count fine, but this stepping out and stepping back...
- Alfred Munson:
- There is no sincerity like a woman telling a lie.
- Anna Kalman:
- How dare he make love to me and not be a married man?
- Anna Kalman:
- The one who looked like a Greek statue. He talked like a Greek statue. I don't think he knew more than a dozen words. Scotch and soda and one or two more.
