Storyline

Bill is a reporter who works with Jane, his gal before he married Claire. After a year, he is still crazy in love with Claire. But Claire has been stepping out and is now going with Wiley, Bill's boss. Wiley puts Bill on the morgue detail, so that he can go out with Claire, and Bill finds out something about a story Wiley has already turned down. Wiley then sends Bill and Jane into the cult of Brother Nameless to give him more time with Claire. Bill can find that Brother Nameless is a scam artist, but he cannot see what is going on in front of him. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Weirdly plotted B-film has George Murphy paired with Josephine Hutchinson...
20 March 2011 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

MGM's B-films all had a certain glossy look to their production values and THE WOMEN MEN MARRY is no exception. It even had three writers working on the convoluted script. I won't even begin trying to describe the plot because it takes too many directions from start to finish. Let's just say it's confusing.

GEORGE MURPHY is his usual genial self with a bit of tough guy swagger when needed and JOSEPHINE HUTCHINSON (remember her later on as the sinister housekeeper in NORTH BY NORTHWEST), is the newspaper woman he loves. CLAIRE DODD is his unfaithful wife carrying on with SIDNEY BLACKMER. Naturally, the pair get their comeuppance at the end of the last reel.

It's a programmer that moves swiftly but makes little sense in the plot department. Steering a straighter course toward the predictable ending would have helped but maybe the three writers had something to do with the "too many cooks spoil the broth" kind of conclusion it came to.

Easy to skip this one.
