The Other Side of Midnight

The film, is directed in somewhat predictable style by Charles Jarrott. The script [from the novel by Sidney Sheldon] seems awkwardly pulled together, making for some weird time jumps in the 1939-47 period even with the help of sequence subtitles.

The film, is directed in somewhat predictable style by Charles Jarrott. The script [from the novel by Sidney Sheldon] seems awkwardly pulled together, making for some weird time jumps in the 1939-47 period even with the help of sequence subtitles.

Inducted early into a life of making it on her body, Marie-France Pisier sleeps her way up to international film star status, all the while paying out money to follow John Beck.

Beck meanwhile meets Susan Sarandon in Washington, DC, whom he marries before going off to the Pacific theater of war. Sarandon has enough troubles in his absence, but when he comes back, her pull with boss Clu Gulager lands Beck lots of jobs.

Pisier, from the mansions of rich Greek Raf Vallone, fixes it so Beck has to turn to work abroad, hiring on as her pilot so she can degrade him.

Players, script and director have not failed the project in this regard; Michel Legrand’s score is appropriately goopy.
