Susan Hayward, James Mason, and Julie Newmar are a fantastic mix.
J. Cowan
Well worth getting for fans of Mason, Hayward, Newmar and (slightly) risque comedies from the early '60's.
Mr. Michael R. Evans
I loved the story as a kid and enjoy the characters and it is great to own it.

THE MARRIAGE-GO-ROUND IS ONE OF THE FEW COMEDIES THAT SUSAN HAYWARD APPEARED IN. ALTHOUGH, KNOWN MOSTLY FOR DRAMA SHE OFFERS A VERY APPEALING, PLEASING PERFORMANCE ALONGSIDE JAMES MASON AND JULIE NEWMAR. THE FILM IS FUN AND ENTERTAINING AND TAKES US BACK TO THE HOLLYWOOD OF THE EARLY 1960S. IT WOULD CERTAINLY MAKE FOR A GREAT DVD THAT IS FUNNY AND APPEALING--SOMETHING VERY LACKING IN THE COMEDY OF TODAY. PLEASE 20TH CENTURY FOX DO THE RIGHT THING AND RELEASE "THE MARRIAGE-GO-ROUND" ON DVD......IT WILL MEAN ANOTHER SUSAN HAYWARD FILM WILL ENTERTAIN THE WORLD........THANK YOU...........GARY JASINKONIS....EAST NORTHPORT, NEW YORK........THE ULTIMATE SUSAN HAYWARD FAN..........

This is an interesting film in Susan Hayward's filmography since it is one of the few comedies she was in.
Made two years after her oscar winning role,"I want to live", Hayward is vey spiritual in this diverting 1960 movie,co starring the talented James Mason and Julie Newmar.

It is also in technicolor and gives again the possibility to watch "The redhead from Brooklyn" in color, which is always a feast for the eyes.

I for one am eagerly waiting for the anounced release of this DVD.Let's hope 20 century Fox hurry up with its release.

It's a really nice widescreen anamorphic picture. The colors are good and the image is sharp. My only concern was the sound had a little hiss which I noticed in the last third of the film and I don't think it is in stereo. Why can't Fox master "Tender is the Night" as well as this one!

I can't agree more with the other two reviews. An Excellent, fun movie starring 3 great actors. Susan Hayward, James Mason, and Julie Newmar are a fantastic mix. I waited forever for Susan Hayward's "Soldier of Fortune" with Clark Gable to be released on DVD and bought it the instant I knew it was out. This great movie is on the top of my wish list.

---From the moment (approximately 5 minutes into the film) when Julie Newmar (as Katrina Swen) gracefully slinks into the gorgeous Frank Loyd Wright-built home of professors Content and Paul Lowell, she (literally) sashays away with the film.....ANYONE (male or female) who can direct more than a fleeting glance at the two supposed leads in the film (Mason and Hayward) when Newmar is sharing film space, is a special individual, indeed. Aside from Newmar's most obvious beauty, she has a feline grace and elegance that defies description, and the Swedish accent she affects, and idiosyncracies she brings to the character of Katrina show why she won the Tony award in 1959 for her portrayal of the same character in the stage version (opposite such heavy weights as Claudette Colbert and Charles Boyer, no less). I have always believed that her exceptional height (6'0"), kept her from acheiving the super-stardom her talents so richly deserved (as, in the 1950's and '60's, there were far fewer really tall leading men than there are today--Tom "shorty" Cruise aside--). Despite this dearth of equally tall (and gorgeous) male actors, her exceptional beauty was recognized at the time (with even crochety NY Times critic Bosley Crowther stating that in this film, she looks like some 21st Century "vision" with perfect proportions).....I was not yet born when this film was made, but have always liked it.....the low rating is due to the fact that the film version falls far short of the stage version (cuts made to the dialogue, due to the industry's adherence to a "G/PG" rating system --before it was introduced-- killed much of the interesting banter).Read more ›

A happily married Academic couple, she (Susan Hayward) is the Dean Of Women and he (James Mason) is a professor, are entertaining a house guest from Sweden. But when the statuesque house guest (Julie Newmar, recreating her Tony award winning stage performance) makes a proposal that he father her baby, what begins as suggestion not taken seriously leads to a marital meltdown. What was daring and risque in the 1958 Broadway play by Leslie Stevens (THE WAR LORD) and its film version barely raises an eyebrow today. Which removes much of the play's teeth and leaves us with a gummy sex farce. Who thought it was a good idea to cast Hayward and Mason in a sex comedy anyway? Neither are exactly known for their farcical abilities. Fortunately, Newmar is a delight as the Swedish amazon who wants a genius to father her child and compensates for the two leads. However, Hayward does acquit herself nicely in a confrontational scene with Newmar over her husband, if only the rest of the film were on that level. Directed by Walter Lang (THE KING AND I). With Robert Paige and June Clayworth.

The Fox MOD DVD-r is a nicely rendered anamorphic wide screen (2.35) transfer.

Every now and then I check to see if Marriage Go Round is finally out in DVD. It's a fun movie starring James Mason, Susan Hayward, and Julie Newmar. And while I love the film itself, what really stands out to me are the costumes and set decorating. Charles Le Maire does a fabulous job with the costuming, dressing the characters in crisp, cool, late 1950s, early 1960s hip clothing. Mason and Hayward wear more traditional attire while Newmar is stunning in her sexy, chic, fun-looking pedal pushers and barely there tops. We can expect such from him, having dressed the incomparable Marilyn Monroe in "The Seven Year Itch," and Joanne Woodward in "The Long, Hot Summer." Duncan Cramer, however, is the one who really blows it out of the water with his art direction in Marriage Go Round. The sets are modern, with beautiful clean lines, uncluttered and completely understated.

I only hope this film will at last be released on DVD soon, so we may be able to enjoy it, again and again.
