Continuity: Bergman puts her gloves on the back of the chair; Grant puts his coat over the gloves. But when he pulls his coat off the chair just before he leaves, the gloves have disappeared.See more »
Philip Adams:Oh, I tell you. Women are not the sensitive sex. That's one of the grand delusions of literature. Men are the true romanticists.See more »

True star-power at its best, 10 October 2000
Author: fletch5

"Indiscreet" is a perfect example of how two attractive stars can save a film. Without the presence of Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, this film would be almost unbearable to sit through. Their magnificent chemistry on the screen makes "Indiscreet" much more enjoyable than it really is...
