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>

The Women Men Marry casts George Murphy as a reporter covering a big story about a religious cult headed by John Wray, he's sort of a white version of Father Divine who had those same kind of soup kitchens during the Depression that you see in this film. Unfortunately while Murphy is covering the story with pal Cliff Edwards, his wife Claire Dodd is stepping out with the paper's owner Sidney Blackmer.

Everyone around knows what's going on but poor Murphy. Feeling really bad is Josephine Hutchinson, fellow reporter and former flame.

This MGM product has the look and feel of a Warner Brothers urban drama with both Claire Dodd and Josephine Hutchinson recently being contract players there.

Murphy as always is a nice guy in this film, but also a bit of a dunce. Fortunately Hutchinson settles accounts all around, you have to see how she does it to appreciate it. Let's just say it's Blackmer's intelligence and image that are involved. And Dodd does not get off Scot free either.

The Women Men Marry should have been released with a question mark after the title. One has to wonder sometimes. It's a nicely paced drama from MGM's B picture unit.
