4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Look at a Tragic Story January 1, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Beloved Infidel is a touching look at the relationship of Hollywood gossip columnist Sheila Graham & F. Scott Fitzgerald. After successful novels like The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night and This Side of Paradise, to name a few, Fitzgerald hit a career and personal slump. His wife Zelda was institutionalized and his writing career at a down turn, Fitgerald was struggling to earn money to cover Zelda's medical fees and his daughter's boarding school while trying to maintain his own sense of self-worth. Enter Sheila Graham who was a life preserver to Fitzgerald and helped him with his struggles, including alcholism. As a fan of F.Scott Fitzgerald, Beloved Infidel is a heartfelt and introspective look at his love affair with Sheila Graham. Gregory Peck does a fantastic job playing Fitzgerald in an honest and charismatic way. Deborah Kerr is equally marvelous, playing the caring and controversial Sheila Graham. On screen, Peck & Kerr are adorable. While the story is tragic, it is also touching and fantastically done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very earnest film about very crazy people July 5, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
Deborah Kerr is the reason to see this film; she is Sheilah Graham, the gossip columnist from the 40s and 50s in Hollywood. She was featured on both radio and television, and she had an odd voice and her comments were deeply personal about movie stars, so much so you thought she lived with them all intimately.

Deborah Kerr plays her as a woman who has invented her past to impress everyone, including Gregory Peck, who plays F.Scott Fitzgerald. He exposes her fictions in a scene on a large beach, where noone else goes, and it is one of the most harrowing forced-confession scenes on screen. Further on into the film, we learn about Fitzgerald, and the fictions he wrote and the many fictions he told to Graham and others, and one sees why Sheilah Graham appealed to him..she, a very adept fabricator of fictions, as he was in and out of novels and short stories, and the very occasional screen play.

See this film for Deborah Kerr's incredible gestures and poses and false statements; her complete inability to relate to truth, and her self-righteous fights with Scott, and Gregory peck's violence toward her, as she rejects his drinking as cute, and his teaching her literature as opressive; and then at the end, a huge dramatic scene with Peck, and a great soundtrack, finds her on that unihabited beach again..a kind of return to the strangely bleak place of exposure ; but then Sheilah Graham writes the memoir, Beloved Infidel, with another writer, and it's fiction all over again especially as adapted for the screen. Their affair is awash with questions and speculations..all of which come out in this film. Any kind of story would do, and it works here, just as much as the fiction that Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald were really lovers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good... March 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Gregory Peck is hopelessly miscast as F. Scott Fitzgerald, first because of his looks and second because of his presence which kind of leads back to his looks. The story just skims little of what we know about Fitzgerald's life. What about Zelda, his wife?

Format:Blu-ray
Despite its low reputation among devotees of the author, Beloved Infidel is a surprisingly decent attempt to turn a self-destructive F. Scott Fitzgerald's affair with gossip columnist Sheila Graham into a glossy CinemaScope love story in the 20th Century Fox house style of the Fifties. Not that it's going for pure soap, with undervalued and unfairly forgotten A-list director Henry King seemingly using A Star is Born for his template, with his screenwriting career failing because he can't adapt his style to the screen while his books fall out of favour - he can't even find a copy of his book to buy her. The comparisons are particularly pronounced in scenes where Gregory Peck's down on his luck author drunkenly barges in on a rehearsal for a radio broadcast and just keeps on making things worse or when he drunkenly insults an admirer on a plane while Deborah Kerr's would-be muse sits cringing in embarrassment. Elsewhere, it draws parallels with the author's own work as he falls for a woman who, like Jay Gatsby, has reinvented her humble origins but can't forget them.

For all his stolid reputation, Peck was always interested in challenging his screen image and even though he's one of the least likely casting choices imaginable for Fitzgerald, he's clearly relishing the opportunity to cut loose in the second half of the picture with the occasional homicidal drunken rage. Kerr's more obviously in her usual comfort zone, worrying, trying to manage a deteriorating situation and suffering as required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie October 26, 2011
Format:VHS Tape
As a movie, "Beloved Infidel" was a good one. Not great, but good. Because I'd researched Sheliah Graham beforehand, I found myself wondering how much of the story was fact and how much was fiction. Besides that though, the movie was beautifully done. The scenery, especially the beach scenes, were lovely to look at.

I actually found Gregory Peck believable as F. Scott Fitzgerald. I'm probably the only person over 40 who hasn't seen "To Kill a Mockingbird" (although I do own the video and hope to watch it someday), I didn't have to worry about the "Atticus Finch Effect" in watching this film. My favorite Gregory Peck film is "Duel in the Sun" where he plays the evil and sexually charged Lewt McCanles. His mean,selfish, jealous, drunk Scott was enough to make me want to smack him on the head.

As always, Deborah Kerr was absolutely gorgeous and I really did feel that she knew what she was doing when she sometimes played Sheliah as an insecure little girl in a woman's body. The scene on the beach when she told Scott to "be nice" just by the way it was said told me that a.) something big was coming and b.) the revelation was going to explain the tone of that request.

All in all, I enjoyed this film and wouldn't mind watching it again.
