Joan Fontaine and Gary Merrill
29 February 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Paragon" benefits from its two stars, with Joan Fontaigne as Alice Pemberton, a snooty woman of great wealth, who thinks she knows best about what to do and how to do it, and never hesitates to let family and friends aware of it. Gary Merrill is a good match as her husband John, who dearly loves his wife, but fears that her bossiness is alienating all those closest to them, patiently trying to explain to Alice how hurtful her never ending put downs are becoming. When she learns certain dangerous information that would mean devastating scandal, refusing to listen to John's pleas, he must resort to drastic measures to prevent her from hurting people anymore. One of those hour long shows that might have worked better in a half hour format.
