The Man Who Understood Women (1959)



Movie producer Willi Bauche is so obsessed with planning the career of his starlet wife, Ann that he has neglected to make her feel loved. Frustrated with his lack of attention, Ann quits the business and runs off with soldier Marco Ranieri. Willi becomes so upset that, while drunk, he orders a hit on Marco — but then realizes that Ann is also in danger. He rushes to save her, trying to finally show the love that he neglected for so long.

Note: Finally I was able to find a copy with the complete ending, all thanks to Michael who sent it to me, not only it’s complete (the previous one was missing about a minute or so at the end) but it’s also in widescreen, making the viewing experience much more pleasant compared to the old copy that was in the old fashioned 4:3 AR.

    David O. Selznick should have sued.
