For Valentine's Day: a song, a book, a movie

The song, an old one from George Harrison...

The book is one I've read many times since I first came upon it as a teen ... Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier ... even Stephen King likes it ;)

Here's a review of it from The Washington Post ... Du Maurier's 'Rebecca,' A Worthy 'Eyre' Apparent

The movie is Notorious ...

a 1946 American spy thriller film directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman and Claude Rains as three people whose lives become intimately entangled during an espionage operation .... Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman), the American daughter of a convicted Nazi spy, is recruited by government agent T. R. Devlin (Cary Grant) to infiltrate an organisation of Nazis who have moved to Brazil after World War II.

Roger Ebert gave the film 4 stars in his review.

Here's a short clip from the end of the movie, where Grant's character breaks his cover to rescue Bergman's character, who's being slowly poisoned by her Nazi husband ....
