Movie Info

One woman's life of love and larceny is recounted in this soapy drama based on the best-selling novel by Sidney Sheldon. In the midst of WWII, innocent French girl Noelle Page (Marie-France Pisier) falls in love with dashing American pilot Larry Douglas (John Beck). When Larry is given new orders taking him back to America, he tells Noelle that he'll come back for her -- when he doesn't, she becomes bitter and pledges to use men for their money and power, not for love. Noelle goes on to become a famous actress and weds Constantin Demeris (Raf Vallone), a Greek multi-millionaire. But she can't shake her passion for Larry, and eventually she hires him to work as her personal pilot. While at first he does not recognize her, soon Larry and Noelle are once again involved in a torrid affair, and when Larry's wife Catherine (Susan Sarandon) refuses to give him a divorce, he and Noelle begin planning a scheme to arrange an "accidental" death for Catherine. The Other Side of Midnight marked the American debut of actress Marie-France Pisier, following her role in the international success Cousin, Cousine.

This silly, nearly three-hour soaper comes close to attaining 'so bad it's good' status.

Lurid twaddle at least has beautiful location shooting and good work from Susan Sarandon to recommend it.

Very good movie :) Susan Sarandon was fantastic as always and Marie-France Pisier played her part well as the french whore.

Next to the "Rocky Horror Picture Show", this is my Favorite Susan Sarandon Film where you can actually feel empathy for her that her husband has never forgotten the French Girl he loved in WWII & then finds & has an affair with her.If it isn't enough that Noelle (Marie-France Pisier)is a Movie Star, married to a Greek Tycoon, but she has to have her (Susan Sarandon) husband too.Visually Stunning Film, Lovely Story.
