Alfred Hitchcock said he was inspired to do the kissing scene in part by the memory of a young couple he spotted from a train in France. The boy was urinating against a wall and the girl had hold of his arm, never letting go. "She¿ look down at what he was doing, and then look around at the scenery, and down again to see how far he's got on," Hitchcock explained. "And that was what gave me the idea. She couldn't let go. Romance must not be interrupted, even by urinating." See more »
Early in the movie an intoxicated Alicia Huberman asks to go driving with T.R. Devlin. They are then seen driving in a 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Deluxe convertible in Miami Florida (top down). Current year of the movie is 1946. The 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible is a rare model with only 3100 units built. Later in the movie Alicia Huberman and T.R. Devlin fly to Brazil. Once in Rio de Janeiro Alicia and T.R. are again seen driving in a 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible (top up) which would have been extremely rare in Brazil. Less then 500 were built for export. The same car is used in both scenes. This would have been impossible in real life as the flight would have taken hours to Rio where shipping the car would have taken weeks. Both Rio scenes and Miami scenes were shot in either country using the same car. See more »

Is there any legal reason why sentence should not be pronounced?

I'm a big fan of Hitchcock movies, and was expecting Notorious to be in the same genre as North by Northwest and Charade---and I was initially disappointed. However, I watched it again and fell in love with this movie!
The plot, if you take the time to think about it, is amazing. Also, it's pretty risqué--everything about it. Bergman is absolutely superb--as is Cary Grant. Ingrid Bergman should have won an Oscar for her performance. Every line is classic and I've ended up seeing the movie three or five times. However, if you're up for a thrilling movie at home w/friends or at a party, this wouldn't be the one. I wouldn't say this is the type of movie for a romantic date either...it's in its own category where you just have to watch it with true classic film fans.
