All this in one of the most elegant films ever made-- and with one of the finest screenplays ever written.
Perhaps this gloss was necessary to lure the viewer into such a dark tale-- and to accept Devlin (Cary Grant) as a lead with whom we can identify. (Well, he's harmless compared to Norman Bates).
But then again, is Devlin really the lead? Or is it Alyssa (Ingrid Bergman), the masochistic romantic who dooms herself twice over for love.
The only character in the whole piece who seems right in the head is the character played by Claude Rains, and he has the little blemish of being a Nazi.
All in all, as suggested above, one of the most perversely brilliant and glittering films ever to come out of Hollywood.
In terms of star chemistry, this is up there with Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, and The Adventures of Robin Hood. And of this list, only this film was directed (superbly) by Alfred Hitchcock.
