Indiscreet (1958)


Bil’s rating (out of 5): BBBB

United Kingdom, 1958.  , .  Screenplay by , based on his play Kind Sir.  Cinematography by .  Produced by Stanley Donen.  Music by , .  Production Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Beautiful little charmer adapted by Norman Krasna from his play Kind Sir that feels as soft as the satin on Ingrid Bergman‘s dresses; it’s another great example of how well Stanley Donen shot films in colour.  Cary Grant plays a debonair NATO financier who romances the delectable Bergman, an actress of the stage who thought she was through with love. The affair should be perfect except for the fact that it really is an affair; it seems our hero is married, though “separated” because he “can’t get a divorce”. Then comes the fun part (though you wouldn’t think so). Rent it, it’s adorable, and Bergman is absolutely divine in every sense of the word.

Golden Globe Award Nominations:  Best Picture-Comedy; Best Actor-Musical/Comedy (Cary Grant); Best Actress-Musical/Comedy (Ingrid Bergman)
