On this Day...Indiscreet (1958)

This was Cary Grant's 64th full length feature film, and his second pairing with Ingrid Bergman.

An adaptation of Norman Krasna's play Kind Sir. A comedy of manners between Grant and Bergman's characters that leads to romance.

The New Republic called it "..a trifle..." but acknowledged Grant and co-star Cecil Parker as "..gifted farceurs".

One of the most memorable scenes is the Eight-some Reel, that shows off Cary Grant's comedic timing!
(See blog: "Oh... we ought to learn that!" under Inspirations label)

Paired together again for the first time since Notorious (1946)

This was the first film by independent production company Grandon Productions, which was setup by Cary Grant and the film's director Stanley Donen.
