ReviewSource Crazy for Cinema
Review As much as I love Barbara Stanwyck, she could have played this "perfect wife" role in her sleep. She's everything any man would want - rich, smart, sexy, charming - and makes Brandon's straying seem perfectly crazy. That is until you get an eyeful of Ava. She's deliciously wicked playing the vixen with a heart of stone who will stop at nothing to get her man. Why she's so enamored with James Mason is the one mystery the film failed to illuminate for me. Sure, he's kind of suave and charming, but in a sleazy, low class sort of way. He also never really captured the emotional turmoil necessary for the role, playing it a bit too stiff for my tastes. However, the talent of his female co-stars more than make up for his limitations. East Side, West Side is entertaining while it explores the dangerous implications of adultery and less so when it succumbs to murder to solve the dilemma. By taking the easy way out, the entire exercise in regaining trust, finding forgiveness and attaining redemption becomes moot. One to watch merely to see Stanwyck and Gardner do what they do best - play strong, determined women.
