Hitchcock Week

A US agent (Grant) plies his charm on an executed traitor’s tormented, alcoholic daughter (Bergman) until she makes up to a German friend and admirer (Rains) suspected of consorting with Nazis in Brazil. Undercover work, starting with guilt, desire and idealism, proceeds to betrayal, (partly self-)loathing and still murkier emotions in a dark love story which rivals, in terms of its bitter overtones, even the later Vertigo. Bergman excels in this film with a memorable performance.
