An American Affair is a Canadian film created in 1997. The movie is based on writings by Judd Laurance and Arshad Shah, and was directed by Sebastian Shah and stars Corbin Bernsen, Jayne Heitmeyer, former Bond girl Maryam d'Abo and Robert Vaughn. The movie was shot in Montreal.
For Sebastian Shah, who did some cinematography work a decade earlier, this remained the only excursion into directing.
The plot deals with the politically ambitious district attorney Sam Brady (Corbin Bernsen) who has a rivalry with a federal senator and frames his son as drug dealer. He also falls in love with two women – Barbara (Jayne Heitmeyer) and Genevieve (Maryam d'Abo) – who are close friends with each other. Genevieve becomes pregnant after having sex with him and he secretly marries her; shortly after she loses the baby. Being caught by Genevieve in the act of having sex with Barbara, he accidentally kills his wife in the ensuing argument, and buries, with Barbara assistance, Genevieve's body on a downtown construction site. In the end, it turns out Genevieve is still alive and was conspiring with Barbara and the senator; however, this is an intransparent part of the plot.
