Worth watching
26 December 2005 | by jdmartin61See all my reviews

I have seen this remake and was impressed with the acting and the style. As remakes go this film works well because it stays close to the original. The previous comparison to Gus Van Sant's remake (which actually used the original script with only 3 or 4 minor variations) was not entirely accurate.

As a rule, I don't care for remakes but I had been very impressed with Ms Robertson's portrayal of Patty Duke in the TV production "Call Me Anna." Because of her acting ability I watched this version of "Notorious" just to make a comparison. I watched the movie from start to finish and never saw one moment that compared badly with Hitchcock's original. There were even improvements due to changing attitudes of today's society. Since this was meant for TV and stayed so focused only added to the experience.

John Shea is most convincing as the U.S. agent who remains cynical about the under-cover spy's motive. The sexual tension between the two is handled in a real and true way without being offensive to some viewers and was better than the "Hollywood" treatment which I am sure that even Mr. Hitchcock himself regretted.
