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 around the world on an odyssey for a 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 it's year.
