Critic Reviews for Personal Affair
Audience Reviews for Personal Affair
Terribly patchy film is of interest more for it's cast than any of the overheated melodramatics that it contains. It's feels very surface and rushed, things are thrown at the audience without ample explanation and are stated rather than felt. Gene Tierney's character in particular is quite vaguely drawn, why is she so insecure when she and Leo Genn seem to have a happy marriage? She is however the right actress for the part since her serene beauty almost always had that underlying hysterical edge to it. Glynis Johns although prominently billed really only has two scenes.
