My Rating

Movie Info

There's always something simmering beneath the quaint and placid surface of small-town New England lives -- and that includes the usual maladies of alcoholism, rape, and suicide. At least this is the case if you go by the tortuous tale told in By Love Possessed, a Peyton Place knock-off, directed with glossy intensity by the usually reliable action director John Sturges (Bad Day at Black Rock and The Magnificent Seven). The tale chronicles the miserable lives of Arthur Winner (Efrem Zimbalist

Audience Reviews for By Love Possessed

Well appointed soaper is enjoyable if you're a fan of the genre but if you want something deep and meaningful this is not the place to look. Latter day Lana is right at home here and is chic and beautifully gowned but isn't really the focus even though she's top billed. Susan Kohner was always an unusual and interesting actress in her brief career but she's saddled with a rather pathetic character, she does what she can with it but her mooning over the selfish git that George Hamilton plays is a head scratcher. Everybody else is as good as they can be within their thinly drawn roles and the whole thing is professionally done but the suds are very thick.
