Oh, I tell you. Women are not the sensitive sex. That's one of the grand delusions of literature. Men are the true romanticists.

Out of Warner Brothers, Indiscreet is directed by Stanley Donen and stars Ingrid Bergman & Cary Grant, with support coming from Cecil Parker, Phyllis Calvert, David Kossoff & Megs Jenkins. It is based on the play "Kind Sir" written by Norman Krasna. Plot sees Bergman as Anna Kalman, an accomplished actress who can't believe her luck when she finally meets the man of her dreams, Philip Adams (Grant). However, Phillip is keeping a secret, a secret that Anna finds out about and promptly sets about getting even with him for.

Indiscreet is a very simple movie. Grant and Bergman re-team again 12 years after making Notorious with Alfred Hitchcock. Their chemistry is again sparkling and Donen utilises it to the maximum by naturally building the film around the charismatic stars. There's no hidden agendas here, the movie knows it is breezy and understands that good writing (edgy at times) and two comfortable actors can make for good entertainment. It starts off slow, but the character build up pays off once Grant & Bergman start their romance, in fact the comedy is indeed thin on the ground for the first half of the film. But once the secret at the core of the plot is out, the comedy kicks into gear, with a dancing party sequence joyous and alone is worth watching the film for.

Also note worthy is the London location which provides a fitting back drop to the well mannered, well to do, coupling of Anna & Phillip. While the costumes too are pleasing and hang nicely off of the two aesthetically safe-in middle-age actors. It's no screwball, far from it, so any expectation of that will surely disappoint newcomers. And true to say it's very old fashioned and of its time as regards its romantic ideals. But that's OK, we like light hearted well written comedy, especially when it's performed as smooth as it is here. 7/10

lovely film, lovely stars

You can't get much higher on the star ladder than Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, and these two are reunited for the light comedy, "Indiscreet," based on the play "Kind Sir." It's about a successful actress in London who's through with men and suddenly becomes very interested in them again when she's introduced to Cary Grant. He could sure shake me out the doldrums, too. The trouble with Grant is that he's a married man...he says.

Bergman is charming and quite funny. I especially love the phone call when Grant calls up from the lobby - all for the benefit of the apartment staff - and she makes faces, rolls her eyes and indicates that this charade of "oh, well, just come up for one drink then" is only for the sake of her reputation - meanwhile, she's found out about a charade of his own and is ripping mad at him. She plots to get even with him - and what a plot! I love the way this film was done - these two are having an affair but it's only assumed, never actually shown. Grant is his usual stunningly handsome, elegant self, and few actors had his turn of a phrase or panache. He and Bergman, as in Notorious, make a beautiful, magnetic couple. This is not a laugh-out-loud comedy, but it is a delight. This film was remade for TV with the gorgeous Lesley-Anne Down and Robert Wagner, but it wasn't the same without the stars and Stanley Donen's touch.

Reely Something

Indiscreet is one of the great examples of the multiple advantages of film over the live performance. The film was taken from a play on Broadway entitled Kind Sir that had almost a year's run and starred Charles Boyer and Mary Martin. The entire play is set in the apartment of the leading lady.

Stanley Donen didn't settle for that. He used the entire city of London as a set and the day and night life of London is glitteringly photographed in technicolor. This film has only seven speaking parts, but all the glitz hides that beautifully.

We're talking here about romance among the very upper crust. Ingrid Bergman is a world famous actress getting on in years, but still looking sharp and looking for love. Cary Grant is a sophisticated diplomat who avoids marriage by making up a fictitious wife that he says will not divorce him. Now those roles are hardly an acting stretch for those two leading players, but I defy anyone to come up with better casting.

Indiscreet has a nice title song that is only heard instrumentally, but Frank Sinatra fans will find the James Van Heusen-Sammy Cahn song on one of his albums. Too bad it wasn't sung in the film.

Cary Grant has always been one leading man who has never been afraid of doing some very physical comedy in his films. Arsenic and Old Lace and The Bachelor and The Bobby Soxer come immediately to mind, but Indiscreet has one of my favorite Cary Grant moments. During a black tie and tuxedo affair, a foursome reel is called. Grant doesn't have the foggiest idea how to do the foursome reel, but he does one grand job at trying to fake it and the other dancers enjoy his impromptu efforts as did this member of the audience.

No deep messages in Indiscreet, just good old entertainment brought to us a by a leading man and lady still with fans the world over.
