Well mounted but a rather tepid soaper about Lana Turner having an affair with her impatient husband's law partner. There's also romantic intrigue with George Hamilton and Susan Kohner, but none of it all that interesting or compelling. This film was directed by John Sturges, who's best know for action/adventure films like "The Magnificent Seven" or "Bad Day at Black Rock" or "The Great Escape" and I'm not sure how well suited he is to these type of material. This type of film seems more suited to Douglas Sirk or Vincente Minnelli and I'm guessing they could have done more with this material and made the type of over-the-top soaper that are wildly entertaining. The film looks great and there is a strong cast that also includes Jason Robards, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Thomas Mitchell, Everett Sloane, Yvonne Graig, Carroll O'Connor, and Barbara Bel Geddes. Elmer Bernstein also gives the film a fine score, but overall this film is rather disappointing considering the talent involved.
