The Bigamist (1953) Edmond O'Brien




Being a traveling salesman has been good to Harry (Edmond O'Brien). But those long trips away from his wife can get lonely, killing time on a tour bus one day he meets Phyllis (Ida Lupino), now he's not so lonely, because he marred her too.

Director:

Writers:

Lawrence B. Marcus (story) (as Larry Marcus), Lou Schor (story)   

Stars:

Edmond O'Brien, Joan Fontaine, Ida Lupino, Edmund Gwenn



The Bigamist is an interesting look into a man who gets caught up in a situation that's out of control. This is a man that knows the right thing to do but does just the opposite. He makes you want to slap him up side his head. During the tour of the Hollywood stars, the driver points out the home of Edmund Gwenn, the star of Miracle on 34th Street, I guess Harry didn't notice that Mr. Jordan was Edmund Gwenn, LOL. I was surprised to find Matt Dennis , composer, songwriter , featured in the film. At the nightclub he sings "It Wasn't the Stars That Thrilled Me". Excellent script and a great cast make this a must see film. And the moral of this story is, just keep your mistress and forget marriage. ★★★
