East Side, West Side
Director Mervyn Leroy lends a burnished MGM gloss to this sordid tale of infidelity among rich New York East Siders. Barbara Stanwyck stars as Jessie Bourne, a charming society woman whose finds out that her husband Brandon (James Mason) is guiltily indulging in an illicit affair with the earthy Isobel Lorrison (Ava Gardner). Jessie bears her husband's indiscretion with a gallant dignity, and when Isabelle is killed, Jesse realizes that she doesn't care for Brandon anyway. Van Heflin is also on hand as ex-cop Mark Dwyer, who admires Jessie's stoic dignity. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"nothing but burnished dreck"
‑ Paul Brenner, Filmcritic.com
"In the MGM tradition, it presents such uninteresting melodrama trash with style and makes it entertaining through its talented cast."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
