Movie Info

An American fighter pilot, Larry Darrell (Tyrone Power), returns from World War I sickened by the violence and fighting he has witnessed. In search of meaning, he travels to Paris, where he tries to live modestly. However, this leads Larry's fiancée, the status-seeking Isabel Bradley (Gene Tierney), to break off the engagement. But Isabel returns to Larry's life when he becomes romantically involved with Sophie (Anne Baxter), a troubled alcoholic recovering from tragedy.

Audience Reviews for The Razor's Edge

    An okay adaptation of Maugham. It isn't a great "returning home" film but Maugham's book does present some real challenges in terms of adaptation. A modern director likely would have been able to do the trick.

    This movie sounds very promising, but it wasn't as good as I expected. The story is very normal, very long, and gets boring eventually. It isn't a bad movie, it just isn't the emotional, dramatic, yet entertaining film it could have been.

    A little long but not bad. A great story too.
