Preston Sturges' Unfaithfully Yours is a typically witty and wild screwball comedy starring Rex Harrison as a symphony conductor named Alfred de Carter who is convinced his wife (Linda Darnell) is having an affair.

No director ever matched Preston Sturges's way of blending low slapstick and literate dialogue comedy.
It is too bad that Preston Sturges is not compelled by law to turn out at least one movie -- maybe two -- a year. For nobody makes films as he does.
Not much liked at the time, but a small masterpiece just the same in its skilful blending of moods, genuinely moving and quite beautifully played by Harrison and Darnell.
It's a brilliantly accomplished work offering a mixture of bitter comedy and outright despair.
Not vintage Preston Sturges, but the finale is a scream.
