Rating:
By Love Possessed is a torrid drama from director John Sturges that explores the twisted web of deceit and lies holding together a New England law firm. Arthur Winner (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), Julius Penrose (Jason Robards), and Noah Tuttle (Thomas Mitchell) are the founding partners of the top law firm in a small Massachusetts town. Arthur feels trapped in a loveless marriage with his wife, Clarissa (Barbara Bel Geddes), more the product of business than pleasure. After several encounters with Julius' wife, Marjorie (Lana Turner), Arthur discovers that a car accident has left Julius impotent and Marjorie unsatisfied. Arthur and Marjorie begin an affair that leaves Arthur despondent, feeling his betrayal to his family and long-time friend and partner, Julius. To make matters even worse, Arthur's son Warren (George Hamilton) rebels and takes up with a local prostitute. When he discovers that his third partner, Noah, is embezzling funds from the firm, Arthur's life comes tumbling down and it is up to everyone else to pick up the pieces.moreless
