There is a famous kissing scene in the film that is very passionate, but not explicit or overly sexual. Characters alternate kissing and dialogue for over two minutes.


A man suspects his wife of cheating, although it is more implied than directly mentioned.

The government essentially asks Alicia to prostitute herself to a German leader (seduce him, marry him, etc.) in order to get information. She marries the man (who she doesn’t love), but carries on a love affair with Cary Grant at the same time.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This film is a cross-border cooperation between Hitchcock and Qiongyao in 1945. It tells the story of the daughter of a Nazi Spy Who was persuaded by an agent of the U.S. intelligence agency to infiltrate into the residual Nazi organization in Brazil to spy for information, and in order to obtain information, she married an old acquaintance who was in a high position in the Nazi organization, although she loved the agent. Later, the Nazi husband found out her identity and plotted with her mother to poison her, and the agent rescued her on the verge of death.

Hitchcock’s contribution to the film lies in: suspense, intense rhythm, exquisite camera angle, the two protagonists Gary grant and Ingrid Bergman, as well as their British deep and twisted character, sinister and cold mother, exquisite silver tableware and 1934 year old betel, and their imagination of filling uranium in wine bottles, And the plot arrangement of the heroine marrying another man and sleeping with him. (on the last point, Ms. Qiongyao once raised a fierce objection on the grounds that “we should not shoot anything that is not beautiful”. Hitchcock refused her to set her Nazi husband as a eunuch – he insisted that only hitch cock had the right to remove cock, and refused to arrange for him to drink the heroine and “cook cooked rice with raw rice” However, he changed the actor of the Nazi husband three times, which was closer to the standard of “beauty” in Ms. Qiongyao’s mind – it is said that Gary grant almost changed the role of the German husband, and the two were in a stalemate for a time, but finally the argument ended at a dinner party, at which Ms. Qiongyao compromised with Hitchcock after eating a chicken leg, The condition was that she asked Hitchcock to promise not to appear in the film, and the latter accepted the request in great pain).

In addition to stopping Hitchcock’s appearance, Ms. Qiongyao also contributed most of the dialogue between the hero and heroine in the second half of the play. It is said that Hitchcock had been confused about how to make the hero love the heroine and not let the heroine feel that the hero is loving the heroine and how to make the heroine love the heroine without revealing the truth to the hero. However, with extremely professional skills, Ms. Qiongyao quickly solved these problems through a pile of careless nonsense and transferred Hitchcock’s confusion to the audience. Hitchcock said quietly, “for me, how to use the camera to enchant the audience is a great pleasure. But Ms. Qiongyao can do better than me just by using dialogue. What we can’t forget is that the sudden love of the heroine to the hero is also the finishing touch of Ms. Qiongyao. It reflects the empty state of mind of the people after the World War II and successfully reveals the “unexplained impulse” prevalent in women’s waist at that time.

We could have looked forward to the next cooperation between Hitchcock and Qiongyao, but after Hitchcock rejected Ms. Qiongyao’s adaptation of “beauty trick” into the TV series “Three Beauties”, the relationship between the two began to deteriorate continuously. Finally, the dictatorial Hitchcock removed Qiongyao’s name from the cast list when the film was released. After receiving her share of the dividend, Ms. Qiongyao, who was unfairly treated, left the four good comments of “he is really cruel, excessive, heartless and unreasonable”, and angrily took the opportunity to return to Taiwan. The next day, the New York Express reported the incident, entitled “four good for hitch”.
