Movie Info

The title character is Edmond O'Brien, a lonely travelling salesman who ends up married to two women, Eve (Joan Fontaine)--and Phyllis (Ida Lupino). Eventually, of course, the truth comes out. Directed by costar Ida Lupino, The Bigamist manages to evoke a certain amount of sympathy for Edmond O'Brien, without in any way advocating or excusing his lifestyle. It's worth noting that an Italian film made around the same time, also titled The Bigamist, is a comedy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Poorly cast and plotted, but still weirdly interesting.

Drags its all-star cast through soap-opera melodramatics of a very high order.

The surprisingly modern-seeming ending casts some shadow onto easy conclusions.

Got trapped in a ridiculous deep-freeze as if trying its best to make the bigamist into an Albert Schweitzer.
