THE HAPPY ENDING (1969) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jean Simmons, Shirley Jones, John Forsythe, Lloyd Bridges, Teresa Wright, Dick Shawn, Nanette Fabray
Directed By:  Richard Brooks
Composed By:  Michel Legrand

“Brooks wrote, directed and produced The Happy Ending, and cast his wife, Jean Simmons, in the leading role. Mary Wilson is a beautiful bored Denver housewife who, after 16 years of marriage, has taken to drink and pills…serious social commentary.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“The American Dream, the affluent upper middleclass marriage, is a conjugal bed of nails peopled by bored-to-tears alcoholic wives and hard working, but less than faithful hubbies…Simmons gives a moving, emotionally wringing performance.” – Variety

Writer-director-producer Richard Brooks (The Professionals, In Cold Blood) brings us a bleakly realistic story about a marriage in trouble, focusing on a wife (Jean Simmons) turning to drink and pills in the face of indifference from her straying husband (John Forsythe). Also starring Shirley Jones, Lloyd Bridges, and Teresa Wright, with cinematography by the great Conrad Hall and music by the sublime Michel Legrand, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
