Storyline

Anna Kalman is a London based actress. She has been unable to find love in her life. The reason why she came home early from a vacation to Majorca fits into that theme, as the man she met there and was initially attracted to ended up not being who she thought he was as a man. Upon her arrival home, she meets the suave Philip Adams, a financier who is a work acquaintance of her brother-in-law, diplomat Alfred Munson. Philip initially states that there is no Mrs. Adams in his life. But when Anna later asks him out, he clarifies that statement in that there is no Mrs. Adams in London, as she is at home in San Francisco. Regardless, Anna decides still to ask him on the date she had intended to the ballet. He accepts, letting her know that whatever happens between the two of them that he will never be able to leave his wife. As time goes on, the two fall in love, their happiness which can only be sustained as long as Philip has his Paris-based contract with NATO. So when Philip announces ... Written by Huggo

lovely film, lovely stars
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can't get much higher on the star ladder than Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, and these two are reunited for the light comedy, "Indiscreet," based on the play "Kind Sir." It's about a successful actress in London who's through with men and suddenly becomes very interested in them again when she's introduced to Cary Grant. He could sure shake me out the doldrums, too. The trouble with Grant is that he's a married man...he says.

Bergman is charming and quite funny. I especially love the phone call when Grant calls up from the lobby - all for the benefit of the apartment staff - and she makes faces, rolls her eyes and indicates that this charade of "oh, well, just come up for one drink then" is only for the sake of her reputation - meanwhile, she's found out about a charade of his own and is ripping mad at him. She plots to get even with him - and what a plot! I love the way this film was done - these two are having an affair but it's only assumed, never actually shown. Grant is his usual stunningly handsome, elegant self, and few actors had his turn of a phrase or panache. He and Bergman, as in Notorious, make a beautiful, magnetic couple. This is not a laugh-out-loud comedy, but it is a delight. This film was remade for TV with the gorgeous Lesley-Anne Down and Robert Wagner, but it wasn't the same without the stars and Stanley Donen's touch.
