Unfaithfully Yours (DVD)
Razor-sharp dialogue and uproarious pitch black slapstick, a true classic from a grand master of screen comedy: Preston Sturges.
Rex Harrison and Linda Darnell star in a marital strife black comedy.
In this pitch-black screwball comedy from legendary director Preston Sturges, Rex Harrison stars as Sir Alfred De Carter, a world-famous symphony conductor obsessed with the notion that his much younger, glamorous wife (Linda Darnell) is cheating on him.
During a concert, the jealous De Carter imagines elaborate, if ridiculous, acts of revenge, set to three separate orchestral works. But when he attempts to put his murderous fantasies into action, nothing works out quite as planned.
A brilliantly performed mixture of razor-sharp dialogue and uproarious slapstick, Unfaithfully Yours is a true classic from a grand master of screen comedy. Director Quentin Tarantino placed the film at number 8 in his top movies of all time.
