It's the accuracy, efficiency and control of Hitchcock's direction that most impress. They enable him to dovetail the film's thriller format and romantic story to dizzying, expressive and unique effect.

Hitchcock's classic 1946 thriller Notorious is a terrific romantic tango between Ingrid Bergman's exotic and spicy socialite and Cary Grant's prim and proper American spy. It's also shameless war propaganda.

Notorious has fascinating echoes of other Hitchcock movies such as Rebecca and Psycho. A must-see or must-see-again.
