Notorious (1946)

You’re as cold as ice.

The moment when Cary Grant locks the car door, sending romantic rival (and poisoner) Claude Rains back to face his fate at the hands of fellow Nazi spies, remains one of the harshest fade-outs in cinema history.

And hey, before you complain about spoilers, the film celebrates its 75th anniversary this year.

If you haven’t seen one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best yet, less whining, and more viewing.

What you’ll find is an elegant slice of film noir, with a zippy Ben Hecht script filled with mystery, intrigue, and dialogue which crackles with every word.
