Format:DVD
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..........

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Hayward also brilliant in comedy ! August 24, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's anamorphic ! March 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Please Please put this out on DVD August 2, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Julie Newmar walks away with this film... April 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
---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).

3.0 out of 5 stars What was risque in 1960 seems tame today! April 5, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marriage-Go-Round April 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw it years ago when it first came out. I find the older I get, I cannot fault very many movies James Mason made. I enjoyed the movie way back then and enjoyed it more now. I know the movie did not get good reviews when it came out, but I seldom criticize performances unless they are really, really bad. I like to just sit back, relax and enjoy.
