directed by Jean Negulesco
USA 1959

 

  Jean Negulesco directed this cornball melodrama in 'Scope, a multi-character omnibus that at times suggests an urban Peyton Place, about young women trying to get ahead in the New York publishing world and encountering mainly sex--not to mention Hollywood's punitive sexual morality of the period. Adapted from a Rona Jaffe novel; with Hope Lange, Stephen Boyd, Suzy Parker, Diane Baker, Martha Hyer, Joan Crawford.

Comments:

Colors are a little duller than  Fox Classic "Return to Peyton Place" and it is not quite as sharp. Some may find the grain excessive, but I wasn't disappointed in this image watching on a tube. Anamorphic to approx. 2.35:1 aspect ratio and progressively transferred it looks quite acceptable. The 4.0 audio is quite consistent. Extras include another commentary that I have not fully listened to.

The film is kind of a studio stab at portraying the new (for the times) sex morality. So from that point it has interesting moments of how opportunities and relations were dealt with. Certainly it is, of course, dated now. out of
