" ...as impeccably tailored and deft with a witty line as ever and looking very little older..."
|With Ingrid Bergman.|
Indiscreet - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Indiscreet is an attempt to revive the kind of urbane romantic comedy that was popular some twenty years ago. To qualify for this category it was necessary that the leading characters be rich and handsome and spectacularly well dressed and that they behave in the somewhat irresponsible fashion equated in the mind of the average audience with genuine sophistication. It was also helpful, though not altogether obligatory, to have Cary Grant as the male star.
Cary Grant, as impeccably tailored and deft with a witty line as ever and looking very little older, is on hand in this new one (in fact, with director Stanley Donen he also co-produced it). Playing opposite him is a magnificently gowned Ingrid Bergman.
The film was adapted by Norman Krasna from his play, Kind Sir. It was not much of a play and the addition of some clever new dialogue does not make the movie version much better. Even so, the two principals, though a trifle mature for this kind of shenanigans, are thoroughly expert and so are Phyllis Calvert and Cecil Parker. And an ultra-handsome Technicolor production rounds out what I suppose could be called glamorous escapism."
