Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant star in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1946 thriller Notorious, which follows the exploits of Nazis in post-WWII Brazil. Notorious became notorious for a make-out session interrupted by sweet nothings every three seconds to ward off the sex censors. The 7pm Tuesday, Aug. 2 screening at the UO Baker Downtown Center is part of DIVA’s Behind the Lens Seminar, which examines a different film and the culture from which it emerged each Tuesday. This summer the seminar features six more works of Alfred Hitchcock.
