Enjoyable, and memorable.
16 July 2019 | by maureen-andersson-1See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on T.V. when we subscribed to an extra channel back in the '70's so we could watch lots of films, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one to the point where I still remember it well. The story may not be completely original, but I liked the idea of the wife becoming the "friend" of the mistress. It's practically a lesson on how to deal with infidelity. I've been watching for the DVD ever since.
