Unfaithfully Yours is a moderately amusing remake of Preston Sturges’ wonderful comedy which, it might be remembered, was a commercial bust upon its release in 1948.

Lavishly mounted and astutely cast farce features Dudley Moore in the role of a big-time orchestra conductor who has just taken a much younger Italian screen star, Nastassja Kinski, as his bride. Moore suspects her of fooling around with dashing concert violinist Armand Assante, and core of the film consists of a fantasy in which Moore murders his wife, but makes it look as though Assante did it. He then tries to pull off such a scheme, with predictably incompetent results.

Moore is right at home on the podium or behind the piano, and his comic invention results in a delightful performance.
