Festooned with flashbacks, Married and in Love is a minor domestic drama given Tiffany treatment by director John Farrow. Helen Vinson plays a vain, selfish woman, unhappily married to Patrick Knowles. Impulsively, Helen decides to kick over the traces an elope with college sweetheart Alan Marshal. It so happens that Marshal is also married, to Barbara Read. The events leading up to Helen and Alan's rash behavior are detailed with a complexity that rivals Citizen Kane. All Married and in Love would have needed to move into the A-picture category was a more bankable cast.
