Audience Reviews for Nora Prentiss

  • Feb 01, 2020
    There are a couple of scenes in "Nora Prentiss" where a married man and his mistress express their attraction for one another. I found these scenes to be heartbreakingly real and the film to be a sobering cautionary tale against adultery . Ann Sheridan plays a chanteuse who has gone through a long line of men who have broken her heart. She meets a successful doctor played by Kent Smith. The married doctor has two children and a marriage that's grown stale. Smith is an uninspired choice for the role. I would have loved to have seen someone like James Stewart or Henry Fonda in the role. Nonetheless, this is a well scripted and directed film.

    the film synopsis leads one to believe that nora prentiss ruins the life of a respected doctor but as gorgeous as ann sheridan is, she's much too sweet for a femme fatale. this is considered a 'woman's noir' but the story is really that of dr. richard talbot, consumed by guilt and increasingly paranoid. it's hard for me to see why nora prentiss stands by him when he was too much a coward to simply ask his wife for a divorce. of course that would've been a much less dramatic film

    Ann is very sensual and glam here, this was one of her biggest hits, the story is nothing you haven't seen before but she makes it worth your while.
