Storyline

Arthur and Vivian are just married, but when the get to their honeymoon suite in Washington D.C., they find it occupied. Arthur goes to meet Slade, his new boss, and when he comes back, he finds three girls in his suite. He orders Vivian to get rid of them, but they are friends of Vivian's and as time goes by, it looks more like Grand Central Station than the quiet honeymoon suite Arthur expected. As long as there is anyone else in the suite, Arthur will not stay there and there will be no honeymoon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Three Wives & A Russian
22 February 2003 | by (Santa Maria, CA) – See all my reviews

I never saw this film until today on TCM TV; Three wild crazy females all wanting to get married to men in government in a Washington D.C. hotel, and lots of crazy antics going on. My favorite Eve Arden really steals the show as the Russian countess; she is fantastically funny! The three actresses are Alexis Smith, Ann Sheridan, and Jane Wyman and they finally get their men; one of them is Jack Carson. Also of note were Alan Mowbray and Charles Ruggles, my favorite brainteasers. If you want to be jolly entertained, see this but be ready for some really stupid antics
