Format: VHS Tape
This film is based on the best selling novel. "Where Love has Gone" by Harold Robbins, which is nothing more than a fictionaized rendering of the notorious Lana Turner-Johnny Stompanato murder case, in which Lana's daughter, Cheryl,stabbed her mother's lover to death. This notorious murder case was the subject of tabloid headlines for some time.

Here, Susan Hayward plays the role of a wealthy, award winning sculptoress, who is a wild thing, wayward and sexually promiscuous, as her sexuality is the only thing that her domineering mother cannot control. One day, she meets a war hero, engagingly played by Michael Mannix, and falls in love with him, when he stands up to her controlling and manipulative, hoity toity, high society mother, a role that Bette Davis fiendishly defines.

They marry and have high hopes, but Bette is always in the wings, controlling, manipulating, and in the end, getting her way, despites the war hero's best intentions. This causes him to become a drunk and for his wife to play around. They manage to have a child, a daughter, but even this is not enough to make them stay together. The mother arranges a divorce for her daughter with the proviso that he have nothing to do with their child.

Time passes, and the scultoress goes on to become highly acclaimed, much of that acclaim bought by her mother, unbeknownst to her. She also continues to have her bevy of lovers. One night, the long lost father, now a highly successful architect, is summoned, as his now teenage daughter, played with baby doll nuances by the very nubile Joey Heatherton, has been accused of murdering her mother's lover. All together after many years, the generations are in conflict as to how the matter can best be resolved. Common sense and decency prevail in the end.

Bette Davis and Susan Haywrd are involved in what is a Hollywood re-telling of the Lana Turner Johnny Stomponato affair and his subsequent murder by Lana's daughter. This film is filled with Bette Davis, raging all over the screen at Susan because she has no taste in men or art. Bette has wonderful scenes where she brandishes her wit and her scathing vocal intonations that level all people in her sight.
Susan is great and has a fabulous wardrobe to go with her usual pathos driven style that makes all her films memorable.
The rest of the cast is not up to the standards of these two, and Joey Heatherton as the murdering daughter is plain bad, but who cares? You have Bette to tell her off, and Susan to correct her.
This Harold Robbins trash is served up on a gold platter by Bette and Susan, who want you to have fun all the way. Buy this film and enjoy, especaillly the ending. Unforgettable! and catch those last lines of Bette's about Susan! Also, watch for a very strange cameo by Jane Greer(she was a film noir moll for Robert Mitchum in the 40's and early 50's, and her career was destroyed by H. Hughes) as a social worker for Heatherton, who has some of the most Puritanical things to say about adultery to Hawyard this side of Salem, Massachusetts.

Take a celebrity murder trial, filter it through the grimy typewriter of Harold Robbins, then use the resulting best seller as a vehicle for Susan Hayward and Bette Davis, and you have camp treasure. Though the story is based on the Lana Turner-Johnny Stompanato murder case, Hayward and Davis make "Where Love Has Gone" their own. Hayward plays an acclaimed sculptress from a wealthy family, who also is, like many Harold Robbins' female characters, a promiscuous harpy. The blame for her wild behavior falls squarely on the gray head of her controlling mother, Davis. Thrown in are Michael Mannix, as the war hero Hayward marries, and a young Joey Heatherton, as their helmet-haired daughter who stabs Hayward's lover. Mannix is quickly buried in the rubble of scenery left behind by Hayward and Davis. Hayward, in particular, really tears into her role. Anyone who sees this movie should know that she was born to play the Helen Lawson role in "Valley of the Dolls" a few years later, though she only got the part when Judy Garland was canned. Even in her tender moments Hayward sounds like she's trying to pick up sailors in a bar. Davis, by comparison, is almost restrained. She also seems slightly drunk, like she belted back a few before she had to go on set to manipulate the other players. She practically announces her lines, then does a quick mental retreat. Poor Joey Heatherton really has nothing to do other than whine "Daddy" repeatedly and churlishly ask for cigarettes. Then again, no performance Heatherton would give on film could ever equal the drama of her personal life.

As if Hayward and Davis weren't enough, check out the set and costume design. The Hayward and Mannix's mod '60s home is truly spectacular--it's like the Brady Bunch won the lottery. And look at the use of color.

I purchased this DVD the day of it's release. This movie is a favorite of mine. I do not possess the technical vocabulary necessary to give an informed appraisal of this DVD transfer, but I'll try my limited best. My hearing is not as acute as it used to be, but the sound appears to be crisp, clear Mono. Picture quality which was not at all bad on the factory VHS is slighlty better here. It looks to me as though this film was struck from a clean theatrical release print. Best of all, this film is presented here in Widescreen for the first time since its theatrical release and this is a distinct improvement. Veteran Director EDWARD DMYTRYK's beautiful work was ruined by the pan-and-scan. Some scenes, apparently trimmed on the VHS seem to have been restored here and the movie flows gracefully in a way it never did on home video before. There are no extras.

WHERE LOVE HAS GONE is probably the best trashy movie of all time. When I say trashy, I'm not knocking the acting, directing or writing. It's just that the film was built around sleazy subject matter. This film is not "campy" in the way that VALLEY OF THE DOLLS or MOMMIE DEAREST were. It's a rather engaging melodrama. A woman's picture, if you will. Joseph E. Levine had just scored a huge hit with the film version of THE CARPETBAGGERS, a sleazy roman-a-clef about Howard Hughes written by HAROLD ROBBINS. WHERE LOVE HAS GONE was the eagerly awaited Robbins follow-up, another roman-a-clef based on the LANA TURNER-JOHNNY STOMPANATO-CHERYL CRANE headline making scandal during which Lana's daughter Cheryl accidentally stabbed Lana's gigolo/gangster boyfriend Stompanato to death while coming to the aid of her movie star mother, Lana.
