This is such a wonderful off-kilt romantic comedy. I hadn't seen Ingrid Bergman in a while and was stunned at how much more beautiful and accomplished an actress she became since her early years of Casablanca. As usual, Cary Grant is at his most charming self, especially when he is giving the most convoluted rationalization for pretending to be married while not actually being married I have ever heard.

Rated 4/10. Great actors, but disappointing story.

This is an absolutely delightful, funny, warm movie which showcases Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant at their best. What you will particularly enjoy is her "revenge" at his having lied to her all along that he was married. (no, it is not shooting him as you might expect that he deserves; "shooting is too good for him" she remarks after she breaks all the Chinese vases in her London flat. "I want him to be tortured and replay his punishment in his head a thousand times a day for the rest of his life."

Of course, her strategy involves her acting skills both as the film actress playing her character in the film, Anna Kalman (A Hungarian last name)compounded with the acting skills of the great London stage character she plays in the film.

As for Phillip Adams, Cary Grant's financial expert character, you have yet another case of the typical American male who fears her whom he professes to love even as he cannot get enough of her affection.

Highly recommended. Uproariously funny.

In “Indiscreet” (1958) Cary Grant's and Ingrid Bergman’s characters are having an affair in London, although Grant’s character claims he is married. These two stars were previously together in 1946 in “Notorious,” Hitchcock’s masterpiece, where Bergman marries Claude Rains, a member of a Nazi spy ring in America (although she supposedly was in love with Grant’s character). In the 1940’s, Bergman was one of the most beloved all actresses, starring with great male actors, Peck, Cooper, Tracy, Bogart, Boyer, Crosby and Cotten. But then, Bergman moved to Italy to make several movies with Roberto Rossellini, with whom she had an illicit affair, got pregnant with Rossellini which broke up both her marriage and Rossellini’s and they got married to great consternation with all of her American fans. It is interesting that in “Indiscreet,” her character is okay with having an illicit affair with Grant’s character.

If you like Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman this is a fun classic. A very simple plot with a little twist at the end. The clothes and sights are enjoyable to watch.
