    Comments about The Loved One (MOD):

    This is not only one of the best "Black Comedies" ever made but one of the best films ever about the dark side of Hollywood and American culture in general. Based on the classic novel by Evelyn Waugh, it was directed by British filmmaker Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) and the screenplay was written by noted American satirical novelist Terry Southern and British author Christopher Isherwood (whose real life experiences in 1930's Berlin formed the basis of the hit musical Cabaret). Fans of Brian DePalma's "Phantom of the Paradise" may recognize the interior locations of Whispering Glades as the same sets used for Swan's mansion (Swan was played by Paul Williams, who also has a small part in this film). These interior scenes for both films were shot at the famous Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Long out of print on DVD, this Warner Archive release is not only a very good transfer, it is also matted for widescreen which was a pleasant surprise since the website description listed it as full frame. Highly reconmended!!!!
