  • A very funny movie

    The Affairs of Susan is not only Joan Fontaine's funniest movie (in my opinion), it's one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, period. Being more known for her serious roles, it is so refreshing to see her excel in a comedy role as well. I certainly hope it is released on to DVD because I have waited to add it to my Joan Fontaine collection for quite some time. I would certainly recommend it to everyone.

    Please release this film on DVD, even if it is part of Joan Fontaine box-set. My memories of this excellent film are starting to fade as I have not seen it for so long.

  • Classic Comedy - Worth of DVD

    Joan Fontaine was made famous for her Oscar worthy dramatic roles such as Rebecca, Suspicion, Constant Nymph, Jane Eyre, and Letter from an Unknown Woman. What is not well known is she was also a gifted comedian. She stars in one such classic comedy "The Affairs of Susan" one of the funniest comedies of the Golden Era of Film.A brief synopsis of the movie. It tells the tale of a prospective groom (Walter Abel) who enlists the help of the ex-husband (George Brent), the ex-fiancee (Don DeFore), and the ex-boyfriend (Dennis O'Keffe) of his future bride (Joan Fontaine) to brief him on who really is the woman he is rushing to the altar of matrimony. Confusion ensues when the three men portray her as a sweet country girl, a glamor girl, and an intellect. Well, it will turn out, Susan is all three (and much more) as the story unfolds.It has a brilliant and witty script (scribed by Hungarian writer Lazlo Gorog) ably helmed by comedy veteran William Seitner. "The Affairs of Susan" was produced by Hal Wallis who also brought us "The Constant Nymph". (And we know how long that took to get to DVD. Thank you TCM for saving that one!)Fontaine fans are in for a rare treat . . . she is dazzling in this one. . . displaying a wide range of versatility that deserves three Oscars! In particular there is a segment in which Fontaine bedazzles (in gorgeous gowns by the Edith Head) as a breathtakingly beautiful dancing, drinking, fibbing party girl that is simply hilarious."The Affairs of Susan" is a classic comedy - a must for any serious film collector- and a great fun filled romp for anyone who enjoys a witty well written Romantic Comedy.

    I remember this movie as a child. It must have been the comedy of it for I never forgot it, and have wanted to find it on vhs or dvd. Will it ever been seen on the tv? I would love to see it again. Cindy
