292. Unfaithfully Yours

Since I don’t like to give any spoilers on this little blog of mine, a review for Preston Sturges’ UNFAITHFULLY YOURS is going to be hard to write. I’ll say this much about the plot: Rex Harrison plays a symphony conductor with world renown and a loving wife. But when he suspects his wife might be having an affair, he begins to entertain some pretty dark fantasies. I won’t say what happens next, because it definitely took me by surprise, but I promise it’s both macabre and comical. The screenplay is unique, with a somewhat experimental structure—and I do love a film with a good structure. It also holds nothing back in terms of how it feels to be a jealous husband, and how jealousy can reduce the best of us to slapstick.
