4.0 out of 5 stars Notoriously Entertaining May 11, 2000
Format:DVD
A finely crafted, sumptuously produced romantic thriller that has the distinction of featuring director Hitchcock, and stars Grant and Bergman at their collective best. Even so, Claude Rains manages to dominate almost every scene in which he appears; his Oscar-nominated portrayal of the lovesick mama's boy engaged in espionage comes off as supremely menacing, emotionally ambiguous, and yet oddly sympathetic ... all at the same time.
The film-to-DVD transfer is quite good. There are a couple of jumps and pops in the master print that are a bit jarring, but overall it's a crisp and clean presentation with great contrast. Although the package doesn't mention it, the DVD does offer chapter search/scene selection which is always a nice perk. There aren't any of the bonus features that we spoiled DVD collectors are coming to expect (trailers, biographical sketches, etc.), but it's still a more than acceptable edition of a truly classic film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Criterion DVD reviewed October 19, 2001
Format:DVD
The video transfer of new Criterion DVD version of NOTORIOUS is a bit sharper, more detailed, and has better contrast than that of the Anchor Bay DVD version released in 1999. Unfortunately, it also reveals a lot more film grains. The graininess is not noticeable in most parts of the film unless a direct comparision with Anchor Bay's transfer is made. But in a few scenes, the graininess just cannot be ignored, and could be detrimental to one's viewing pleasure. In spite of that, in my opinion the increased detail and sharpness of Criterion's transfer is still preferrable to Anchor Bay's comparatively softer and darker picture.
Regarding audio, it is no contest. Criterion's mono 1.0 sound has MUCH greater clarity, depth, details, volume than Anchor Bay's comparatively muted and muffled soundtrack. In addition, the Criterion disc also includes optional English subtitles while Anchor Bay's does not.
The Criterion DVD retains all of the supplementary material from their own CAV laserdisc version from 1991, and it adds some more...
There are two excellent audio commentary tracks. One is by Marian Keane, and it deals straight with the artistic aspects of the film by providing scene-by-scene, shot-by-shot dissertations. Commentaries like this are rare, and it is most beneficial to average viewers who want to learn more about the purposes and intentions behind every shot, every cut, every line. For instance, in a seemingly ordinary shot of a grandfather clock inside the Sebastian home, Keene analyzes the composition by pointing out the phallic symbol of the clock that suggests Alex's presence, the adjacent banister that reminds us of his mother, and the flower at the window that suggests the vulnerability of Alicia.

Format:Blu-ray
Notorious (1946) is a stellar achievement from director Alfred Hitchcock and master screenwriter Ben Hecht with Oscar worthy performances from all 3 principal stars, Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman and the ever Oscar worthy Claude Rains. It is hands down somewhere (arguable I suppose) in the top 5 films Mr. Hitchcock has ever made and sports a truly nuanced and multifaceted performance by Cary Grant who proves in THIS film he is not just a pretty face but a very fine actor who was capable of much more than he is usually given credit for.

With that said, this review will focus on the technical aspects, both audio and video, of this Blu Ray presentation rather than the film content itself. If you are a casual viewer or someone who can not abide film grain, this transfer will most likely be less than satisfactory for your tastes and you could easily get by with the latest DVD version. I am, however, a MAJOR fan of Cary Grant and fully intend to purchase each and every title of his that becomes available on Blu Ray This review is for those of you who are OCD about the video/audio quality of B&W classics and need to know if it is worth spending again for this title. If this sounds like you, then read on!

The disc itself is housed in an appallingly cheap Eco-Case with equally appalling cover art. (I use the term "art" loosely here) The media is of good quality, not the cheap super thin discs that have been going around lately. The disc has color printing on it, the same as the case cover. The transfer uses the AVC codec with an average transfer rate of 38 MBPS on a 50 gig disc and presented in it's original full frame aspect ratio.

I read numerous online reviews regarding this transfer before purchasing, so I pretty much knew what I was getting myself into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stars Shine in Rio August 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
One of Alfred Hitchcock's most complex romances features two of his favorite stars (Gary Grant and Ingrid Bergman) in the lead roles. Set against a background of spies and counterspies, Notorious remains first and foremost a love story. When Alicia Huberman (Bergman), the daughter of a convicted Nazi is hired as a double agent, she discovers she's in for more than she bargained for. While assigned to uncover scientific secrets from Germans hiding in Brazil, Bergman makes the ultimate sacrifice for her country by marrying her father's former conspirator, Alexander Sebastian (Claude Rains). Bergman is desperately in love with American agent T. R. Devlin (Grant), who she believes has deserted her emotionally, but marries Rains almost out of spite rather than pure patriotism. Through the many plot twists and turns, Bergman and Grant realize their true feelings for one another. A truly wonderful suspense, Hitchcock gets amazing performances from his cast. Bergman (never more beautiful or appealing) and Grant are excellent as the lovers who can't seem to express their mutual affection. Both seem ready to explode from all the pent up emotions. Rains is perfect as the mama's boy Nazi leader, and what a mother German actress Leopoldine Konstantin is in her only American film! The plot was so original that the writers of Mission Impossible II ripped it off (including the contact meeting scene at the racetrack!) with less than mediocre success.
