In the tradition of The Palm Beach Story and It Happened One Night – The great Sam Wood (The Devil and Miss Jones) directs this screwball romantic comedy starring Claudette Colbert (Since You Went Away) and her Midnight co-star Don Ameche (Moon Over Miami) about a wild marital mix-up. Determined to impress his old-fashioned sentimental boss, a quick-thinking unmarried foreign correspondent (Ameche) talks his best friend’s bride (Colbert) to pose as his wife. When the hoax gets hopelessly out of hand, he nearly ruins the couple’s honeymoon and their marriage. The Guest Wife is practically a hidden treasure from Hollywood’s heyday of screwball comedies with two legendary stars and a great supporting cast of Charles Dingle, Grant Mitchell, Chester Clute and Richard Foran as Colbert’s husband and Ameche’s best friend. Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by Joseph A. Valentine (Shadow of a Doubt).
