    When I first saw that David Niven had been paired with Barbara Stanwyck in this film, I was astonished, as the two of them just seemed miles away from one another in chemistry and in type; however, after having viewed it, I changed my mind completely. They actually play off each others strengths and the film is better for it. You would be hard pressed to decide who is the real star of this film. Niven is excellent as the no-nonsense doctor who is sent a new resident for his sanitarium and he discovers the new patient is a famous pianist but is also gravely ill. He goes about his job of trying to cure her in a completely professional manner, while she tries to get him interested in her. When she is better, believing he has no interest, she takes up with Richard Conte. Conte (Don Barzini in "The Godfather") initially appears to be a playboy that uses Stanwyck as nothing more than a bauble to shine on his arm but he grows to care for her a great deal. She throws all caution to the wind and parties, drinks and smokes to excess, despite her doctor's orders. When Niven actually goes to find her, she tells him to get lost but he talks to Conte and discovers Conte knew nothing about her illness. There is a very brief but strong (& quite vile) appearance by the great Gilbert Roland who is a croupier at the club where Conte & Stanwyck gamble. The film unfolds after their disastrous meeting, as Stanwyck gives him money to take her back to the sanitarium where she is nursed back from the brink. I very much enjoyed this film and I am sorry that Niven & Stanwyck were never again in a film together, as this was a great pairing of two extremely fine actors.

  • Wonderful gem...

    This little-known Stanwyck movie is a new favorite of mine - and as the previous reviewer wrote, her "piano playing" skills are pretty impressive...almost convinced me she was the real thing. Solid performances also by David Niven and Richard Conte, who plays a dashing race car driver handsomely. I enjoyed this sentimental film and would happily watch it again and again. Too bad it's not available for purchase...guess I'll have to wait until it shows on TCM again...

  • Rare Stanwyck

    This is a rare Barbara Stanwyck film that I was able to locate in a vintage video rental store..This has always been one of my favorite Stanwyck films..a gentle yet wonderfully nuanced performance by the great Ms. Stanwyck..This is one of her many versatile portrayals that is seldom if ever brought up or discussed in the mainstream films of Ms. Stanwyck... She most effectively conveys skills at the piano eventhough it was dubbed..She was a fairly skilled pianist in reality...Both David Niven and Richard Conte provide solid support..

    I have an interest in clasical concert pianist themed movies, no matter what the critics sat. This is a genre that is sadly missing in todays culture. I don't think I've ever seen The Other Love,but am still interested in reviewing it.
