Notorious (1992 film)

Remember how sexy and suspenseful Alfred Hitchcock’s 1946 Notorious was, with its heady mixture of Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Nazi spies, and U.S. government agents? Well, don’t look for any of that sort of thing in Notorious, a clumsy remake starring John Shea (Baby M; WIOU) and Jenny Robertson (Bull Durham) in the great stars’ roles.

The TV movie ends up a soggy love story. Rent the original. D-
