Notorious Basterd



Though he's standing, he's scarily slanted
And the cam'ra is daringly canted
Something's truly askew
But from whose point of view?
One more damsel's been Carily Granted.



That's Miss Ingrid Bergman of course, watching Cary Grant's brilliant, topsy-turvy introduction in Notorious (1946). Please consider donating to The National Film Preservation Foundation during the week-long FOR THE LOVE OF FILM blogathon, which this year is tilted in the direction of the one and only Alfred Hitchcock.

Tinky, I grew up in a home with an older sister who was, and is, completely and utterly "Granted".
