"The Grass Is Greener" is a 1960 comedy
filmdirected by Stanley Donenand featuring an ensemble cast consisting of screen veterans Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum, and Jean Simmons. The film was adapted by Hugh Williamsand Margaret Vynerfrom the play of the same name which they had written and found success with in London's West End.
Members of British aristocracy, Victor and Hilary Rhyall (
Cary Grantand Deborah Kerr), are facing financial troubles and are forced to have guided tours of their House. When obnoxious oil tycoon Charles Delacro ( Robert Mitchum) and an equally grating ex-girlfriend of Rhyall, Hattie Durant ( Jean Simmons), visit, a love triangle (or quadrangle) develops and kicks off a tale of love, jealousy and other strong emotions.
While the film was a moderate success at the U.K. box office, it fared much worse in the
United States. Reviews of the film were mostly lukewarm. Despite its initial failure, the film has since developed a following and has been a staple of American cable television. At the time of its release, Jean Simmons's performance as a madcap heiress earned some praise for the British stage actress, earning her a Laurel Award nomination.
