Poster for the film NOTORIOUS


Part of our Cinema Studies program

In order to help bring Nazis to justice, U.S. government agent T.R. Devlin (Cary Grant) recruits Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman), the American daughter of a convicted German war criminal, as a spy. As they begin to fall for one another, Alicia is instructed to win the affections of Alexander Sebastian (Claude Rains), a Nazi hiding out in Brazil. When Sebastian becomes serious about his relationship with Alicia, the stakes get higher, and Devlin must watch her slip further undercover.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious will be followed by a lecture by Dr. Anna McCarthy, Professor in the Department of Cinema Studies at New York University Tisch School of the Arts.

"Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious is the most elegant expression of the master's visual style."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Dr. Anna McCarthy is Professor in the Department of Cinema Studies. She served for eight years as Coeditor of the journal Social Text and currently edits Social Text Online. Her research areas are media studies and media theory. Her first book, Ambient Television (2001) looked at the cultural, commercial, and political uses of video screens in public space. Her second, The Citizen Machine (2010), traced how various postwar institutions–labor unions, philanthropies, big business–experimented with television programming as a tool for governance. Among her co-edited volumes is the anthology MediaSpace (2004), which brought together an international group of media scholars to examine the spatial logics of media objects ranging from the smart house to the Sony Walkman. Her current research focuses on Irish film and television in the context of the cultural transition from theocracy to secular state. A fiction writer, her stories have appeared in the journals Pacifica Literary Review, Litro, Short Fiction, and The London Reader. She teaches courses on a range of subjects, from the history of the sitcom to the figure of the 'old lady' in the films of Alfred Hitchcock.

This film is part of the Beyond Suspicion: Alfred Hitchcock 2023 series.
