Today in Movie History: September 6

Another quiet day, save for one very notable exception. Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious, long considered one of his greatest, pits Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant against fugitive Nazis in a tale of romance and danger. Its dark and complex sexual politics helped it stand out from other thrillers of the day, as well as providing Bergman with a welcome alternative to the nice-girl roles she was known for at the time. It also featured one of Hitchcock’s most famous MacGuffins… and possibly the most memorable kiss in movie history. Notorious opened today in 1946.
