Adapted from the prize-winning Broadway play that featured two people and a four-poster bed, in which the couple enacts their marriage, from its day in 1897, until he dies, some time after she has died from cancer. It is a "love" that endured wars, an "other" woman, and the death of their favorite son. The episodes are bridged and linked by cartoon sequences done by UPA (United Productions of America.)Written by

This was the only film that made me leave the movie theater during the session, by being definitively bored. It was by 1957, I was 11 and lived in a small town where I used to see all kind of films, 4 or 5 films a week, enjoying from USA musicals and westerns, Mexican and dramas to Italian neo realism and french sex ones. I remember that, no matter Rex Harrison and Lili Palmer were respected actors, the film was to much static and absolutely theatrical, with endless dialogues. 50 years late, I read these much favorable and sensitive comments about it and become very very curious to see it again, as an aged man and yet a great fan of the movie art.
