Sensitive and thought provoking look at relationships
26 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Married and in Love is based around the chance meeting of two former lovers Dr Leslie Yates (played by Alan Marshal) and Doris Wilding (Helen Vinson), and the impact of this on their lives and their respective spouses (played by Barbara Read and Patric Knowles).

Though fairly understated dramatically, it is has some interesting insights on love and relationships. At less than one hour long it also does not outstay its welcome. While none of its principals were major stars, they all do a good job, though Barbara Read's so nice character might be a bit grating for modern audiences.

I came across this movie when reading the RKO Story where it was described as "a brittle domestic drama that attracted good critical reports but minimal consumer interest." RKO made some of the more interesting and off beat Hollywood movies during its existence and I have a soft spot for their better efforts (they made their share of unwatchable stuff as well). Of interest also was the director being John Farrow who was behind some good movies such as Alias Nick Beal.

It took a little while to track a copy down (it is not commercial available but has been shown on AMC - I got my copy through ebay) but I found it well worth it.
