Description
"He was the most hated man on earth. But he could have been one of the great men in history. He was a genius." So begins the post-mortem recollections of the cast of characters that had the misfortune of crossing paths with Clementi Sabourin, a cad of such monumental proportions that only George Sanders could play him. Clementi’s story plays out in a series of flashbacks, as his life story is relayed by those who knew him to the police, who are investigating his murder. Yvonne DeCarlo, Zsa Zsa Gabor (the ex-Mrs. Sanders), Nancy Gates and Coleen Gray play the eye-catching “Four beautiful reasons behind...the Death of a Scoundrel” promised by the film’s poster while Sanders’ sibling Tom Conway appears as Clementi’s brother. Contributions from the equally celebrated James Wong Howe (cinematographer) and Max Steiner (composer) add luster to the film’s pulp noir pursuit of the truth of a great man, greatly dedicated to only himself.

Comments about this product:

I never knew about this movie until TCM ran it this week. As I watched, I had to check the date it was created, because the script almost reads as a bio of some thoroughly modern scoundrels. For entertainment value think: All About Eve or Mildred Pierce, Sunset Blvd. George Sanders is perfectly despicable. But what he does is not fantasy. Who the Dickens was the script writer and who was he writing about? Or was he simply psychic? Watch this gem for yourself and you may well see reality in the characters. Or will you? The movie is smoothly seamed and flows quickly. Character development is subtle. Doesnt take much to establish their places in this jigsaw puzzle of the psyche. Thank you TCM, I thought I had seen them all
