I don't think this is Hitchcock's best film with Cary Grant (that would be North By Northwest), but it's still a pretty good one. Bergman is great, and so is Claude Rains (you're so manipulated that by the end there's a moment of sympathy for this guy who is about to die). At times, it is very, very well-shot, especially for the period in which it was made. At other times, the rear-projection is a little distracting, although it's nice to know it was shot by the same DP who photographed Citizen Kane.
