Beloved Infidel is a 1959 DeLuxe Color biographical drama film made by 20th Century Fox CinemaScope and based on the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The film was directed by Henry King and produced by Jerry Wald from a screenplay by Sy Bartlett, based on the memoir by Sheilah Graham and Gerold Frank. The music score was by Franz Waxman, the cinematography by Leon Shamroy and the art direction by Lyle R. Wheeler and Maurice Ransford.

The film stars Gregory Peck and Deborah Kerr with Eddie Albert and Philip Ober.


Writer F. Scott Fitzgerald (Gregory Peck) is a washed-up has-been; his wife is in a mental institution and he has turned to alcohol. His only interests in life are his affair with radio host Sheilah Graham (Deborah Kerr), and his latest novel – which ultimately remains unfinished.
