The Private Affairs of Bel Ami 1947
A callous cad ruthlessly climbs the ladder of Parisian society by exploiting a string of high society women. The Private Affairs of Bel Ami is based on the novel Bel Ami by Guy de Maupassant. This is a revealing character portrait of a scoundrel that remains as devastating today as it was back in the 1940s. It’s a harsh look at love from a much different perspective than normal.

It’s 1880 in the heart of Paris society. Lead actor George Sanders ably plays George Duroy, a womanizing journalist that quickly discards his relationships when they stop offering him benefits. He’s a cynical scoundrel in affairs of the heart, cleverly seducing women and then abandoning them at his convenience. It is all for a quick rise up society’s ladder of wealth and stature. George owes nothing to anyone but himself in his heartless approach to life.
