By Love Possessed (19-Jul-1961)

Director: John Sturges

Writer: Charles Schnee (as "John Dennis")

From novel: By Love Possessed by James Gould Cozzens

Music: Elmer Bernstein

Producer: Walter Mirisch

Keywords: Romantic Drama

Two failing marriages connected with a small town New England law firm prompt Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and Lana Turner to engage in a torrid affair; Zimbalist's son, George Hamilton, ignores his beautiful fiancée in favor of another girl. Strained soap opera of rich, dissatisfied people whose characters are never sufficiently developed; it is difficult to care about anyone involved. Dramatization of the tail end only of James Gould Cozzens's novel. Accompanied with a lush score by Elmer Bernstein.
