The Best of Everything (Blu-ray) Twilight Time


A fabulously juicy melodrama based on Rona Jaffe’s spicy novel about working girls at a 1950s-era New York publishing house, The Best of Everything (1959) is brought to the screen by that painterly master of ’Scope, director Jean Negulesco. Starring Hope Lange, Diane Baker and Suzy Parker as a trio of roomies working under an “exacting” female boss (the one and only Joan Crawford), the film details their trials and tribulations, both professional and very very personal. Also starring Stephen Boyd, Louis Jourdan and future super-producer Robert Evans as the naughty men in their lives, the film is highlighted by a staggeringly beautiful score from the singular Alfred Newman, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
