Unfaithfully Yours: The Criterion Collection DVD
SKU ID #323993
Hollywood historians agree that writer-director Preston Sturges took the "screwball comedy" and elevated it to superb heights. His blend of slapstick, witty repartee and memorable characters are on full display in this feature. Ego-driven conductor Alfred (Rex Harrison) returns to New York from a triumphant European tour only to have his brother-in-law accuse his wife Daphne (Linda Darnell) of being unfaithful. She wasn't, but that doesn't stop Alfred from imagining the perfect crime of disposing of her. When Alfred tries to carry out his scheme he botches it in a series of hilarious physical gags. This is cinematic comedy at its finest.
