The Razor's Edge is an American film from 1946, based on the novel of the same name by W. Somerset Maugham. When Larry Darrell (Tyrone Power) returns home from the fields of World War I, he grows tired of his fiancée, Isabel (Gene Tierney), and decides to travel the globe in a journey of self-discovery. A few years into the journey, the two meet, by chance, in Paris, where a married Isabel is living with her uncle (Clifton Webb). As they re-connect, she attempts to make Larry fall back in love with her. The film was made for a budget of 1.2 million dollars, and was a great success. Clifton Webb was nominated and Co-star Anne Baxter won a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award. Originally, the studio hired George Cukor to direct the film, but he was later fired due to creative differences. Edmund Goulding stepped in at the last minute.
