United Artist's promotion for the film read: "Gregory Peck makes that Hemingway kind of love to Joan Bennett in The Macomber Affair! After the biggest game of all - a woman! On the hunt he took two things as they came - the charge of a snarling lion - the fury of a fear-crazed coward - the lips of a love-crazed woman - cruelty and yearning - of such things was their love made."

Preston was asked what gun did you bring and he said Holland and Holland. Holland and Holland is a make not a caliber. He should have been asked what type and caliber did you bring. See more »
I did not read the short story, so i can only go by what i saw and heard in the movie. It is possible I missed some dialogue along the way that would tell me how long this couple ( Bennett and Preston ) were on the safari, for Peck's character to fall in love with Bennett, who showed a side of contempt of her husband in front of him...now that really should turn a man on, right? The leads do well in their parts, but it was Bennett that surprised me...she was really a 'bitch' as they say. I couldn't see her in this role as her usual natural Blond, but since her transformation of the Hedy Lamarr look ( she dyed her hair black ) cause she was enamored of the Hedy face, as millions of others had at that time, her career got a boost. That said, and the ambiguous ending made an interesting hour and a half for me.
