2 1/2 out of 5 stars. I got a little excited by the noirishness towards the beginning but that didn't last long. The Eve Arden speech towards the end was pretty snappy but overall The Unfaithful is a more feminine approach to film noir, still commenting on post-WWII society and women's roles, just not in the savage and carnivorous way I like my noir.
Decent remake of the Letter with some minor plot changes starring the great Ann Sheridan. She lifts the film considerably, which would otherwise be forgettable. Obviously, check out the original by Wyler first for an A+ excellent drama, this one, is just an ok rendition. 3 stars, as there are worse ways to spend an evening.
