Merrily We Go to Hell

Merrily We Go to Hell

Directed by Dorothy Arzner • 1932 • United States
Starring Sylvia Sidney, Fredric March, Adrianne Allen

One of director Dorothy Arzner’s most fascinatingly subversive portraits of marital dysfunction stars Sylvia Sidney as a wealthy socialite who falls in love with an alcoholic writer (Fredric March), kicking off a rollercoaster relationship that will drag them both through the depths of hedonistic abandon. Tackling issues of addiction and open relationships with striking sophistication, MERRILY WE GO TO HELL was Arzner’s personal favorite among her own films. Look out for a young Cary Grant in an early supporting role as one of Sidney’s suitors.
