The Other Love
Barbara Stanwyck (Double Indemnity) is Karen Duncan, a famous concert pianist living her dream until she’s stricken with tuberculosis. She’s sent to Swiss sanatorium to rest, unaware her illness is terminal. There she falls for her caretaker, Dr. Anthony Stanton (David Niven), who has trouble getting her to face the seriousness of the condition. With the help of her neighbor (Joan Lorring), Karen rebels against Dr. Stanton’s strict rules and eventually meets a dashing racecar driver, (Richard Conte). Soon, Karen is sneaking out into town to meet him. But when a fellow patient dies, Karen begins to understand the gravity of her illness and must decide whether it’s worth risking her life for love. This bittersweet tearjerker was director by Andre De Toth and is based on a story by Erich Maria Remarque (All Quiet on the Western Front).
