| Dated. And How !
How times have changed since this movie was made !

It's the story of a gold-digging female (McGuire) who sets her sights on a young doctor. After marriage, she finds that (surprise !) the life of a doctor's wife is not as perfect as she thought it would be !

There follows misunderstandings, petty arguments & many manipulations. Most of these incidents are unpleasant.

Only bright spot is the performance of Leif Erickson as a smarmy, womanizing psychiatrist. The scene is amusing where he tries to seduce not one but two married women ! This is probably his best role.

Is this a real portrait of marriage or just a dated piece of the past ?
