As you probably know, TCM has been showing some of the great Hollywood movies this month.    I paid attention a few years ago and have connected with many great works that I had never seen before.

Before I start, let me tell you that “The Razor’s edge” from 1946 runs about 145 minutes, or a very long time.    Nevertheless, the plot is very different and will keep you tuned in.

It is the story of Larry Darrell, played by Tyrone Power, a young man who just returned from World War I.    He was deeply affected by the war and needs a little to find the important things of life.

His girl is Isabel Bradley, played by Gene Tirney, a beautiful young woman who has marriage and commitment in mind.

There are other great performances in the movie, such as Clifton Webb and Anne Baxter.   Cecil Humphreys as “The Holy Man” is great.

Larry and Isabel do not get married.   They pursue different paths but circumstances bring them back together much later.

And the rest is up to you to watch.    I think that you will enjoy it.    It is based on a popular book by W. Somerset Maugham.
