"La mujer de otro" (Another Man's Wife) was one of several movies that Martha Hyer made in Europe during the late 60s. Martha was a big international star in Europe. In the opening credits, her name is listed above the movie title, a rare honor for any actress.
Martha is truly the star of this soap opera. She plays Ana Maria, a happily married woman with two sons. One day, she accidentally encounters Andres (John Ronane) her college sweetheart whom she hasn't heard from in many years. Andres is also married and has a young daughter. The two begin a torrid love affair that forms the basis for the plot.
Martha Hyer was 43 when she made this movie. She was still exquisitely beautiful and her body seems to have been in fantastic shape, as evidenced by a few bathing suit scenes, which include her going snorkeling under water.
The scenery and photography are excellent. The film is done entirely in Italian, without subtitles, but it was fairly easy to tell what was going on. Martha's voice was dubbed by an Italian actress who did sound a little like Martha, who has a very distinctive voice.
This film can be enjoyed by Martha Hyer fans, even though it is in Italian without subtitles. She is clearly the star and does some great acting with her many emotional scenes.
