John Farr discusses a romantic comedy starring Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant, directed by Stanley Donen.

Indiscreet (1958)

What It’s About:
Industrialist Philip Adams (Cary Grant), on business in London, meets famous stage actress Anne Kalman (Ingrid Bergman) and pretends to be married, presumably to avoid the subject further down the road. Anne still can’t help falling in love with him, of course. But when she learnsWhen the fiery Anne learns he’s not married, she schemes to make him pay for his ruse.

Why I Love It:
What Director Stanley Donen uses excellently here are two gorgeous, sophisticated stars that fit like a glove. He also creates a deliciously elegant atmosphere with colorful, chic sets, scenic London locales, and stunning Dior gowns and stunning Dior gowns that comprise a feast for the eyes. “Indiscreet” will transport you to another lost, pleasant, and civilized time and place when the words “sophisticated”‘ and “comedy” could actually go together.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself! Yes, they don’t make them like they used to, perhaps because we’ve lost too much of our innocence? Here’s hoping we can get it back.
