The make-up showing of Unfaithfully Yours (originally cancelled due to snow) is screening Tuesday, Feb. 1. Here’s an excerpt of the original review I wrote: “Unfaithfully Yours (no, not that ghastly 1984 remake with Dudley Moore) marked the end of Preston Sturges’ meteoric career in terms of fully formed projects—and what a spectacular farewell it is. It’s easy to see why the film flopped when it came out in 1948: It was way ahead of its time. That was not an era attuned to black comedy involving attempted murder, attempted suicide and suspected infidelity—not to mention a movie grounded in three pieces of classical music. It was simply too sophisticated all the way around.” For the full review, go to: http://www.mountainx.com/movies/review/unfaithfully_yours1
