"The Loved One is not only satire at its most ferocious. It is a macabre frolic filled with laughter and ingenious devices. It is devilishly clever, impishly amusing." - The New York Times, 1948.

A sad irony of life: People pay thousands to bury a relative they hate, but balk at paying ten bucks to cremate the dog who stood by them for a decade.

Recently kicked out of Hollywood, Dennis takes an ignominious-nay-shamefully vulgar job, tending the dead. More than his reputation hangs in the balance if his snobby British ex-pat community discover his secret.

A biting cultural satire that juxtaposes the shallowness of fa ade with the deep, long-lasting consequences of reputation.
