4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, October 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beloved Infidel [VHS] (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.
