W. Somerset Maughaum’s acclaimed bestselling novel was first brought to the screen in 1946, starring Tyrone Power, Gene Tierney, Anne Baxter and Clifton Webb. Delivering a strong dramatic performance that made the critics sit up and accept him seriously, Power portrays Larry Darrell, a flyer who returns from World War I desperately seeking spiritual peace. Rejecting the materially comfortable world of his fiancé (Tierney), he journeys round the world on an odyssey for truth that takes him from the dingy back alleys of Paris to the shimmering mountain tops of the Himalayas. The film was nominated for 4 Oscars, including Best Picture, and an award went to Anne Baxter as best supporting actress for her role of Sophie, a woman who overcomes personal tragedy only to ultimately be betrayed and ruined. A lavishly-mounted, superbly-acted box office hit, The Razor's Edge is a challenging story of truth, revenge, love and faith that was named as one of the best films of its year.
