Margaret Weldon:[Crying in bed] I'm not going to be any use to you at all. I can see that.
William Weldon:Please, Margaret. You're just trying to pick a fight.
Margaret Weldon:No, I'm not. But you needed me when... when we were poor little nobodys. I meant something to you and I helped too even if you did holler. But now, now we're going to be lost in forest of butlers. Oh, Bill I'm scared.
William Weldon:Oh, don't talk crazy.
Margaret Weldon:Mrs. Winterbottom told me that... that they were happy when they had one room and a Murphy bed. Now they have separate bedrooms.
William Weldon:Tsk. Tsk. Awful. Now go to sleep.
Margaret Weldon:I can't. I just love this room. And now we're going to have 20 bedrooms that... I won't even be able to find you. That's no fun.
William Weldon:Darling, we'll only have one bedroom.
Margaret Weldon:You promise?
William Weldon:I promise.

Lucy a couple years prior to her show, 19 March 2009
Author: ksf-2 from southwest US

Lucy had a bit part in Franchot Tone's "Moulin Rouge" ten years prior to this film, but this time she gets the female starring role up against Tone. Right from the beginning of "Her Husband's Affairs", we see that William Weldon (Tone) gets himself into jams, and wife Margaret (Lucy) has to get him out of them every time. William's boss JB, is the awesome Edward E. Horton, made up to look quite old and bald. (Viewers will recognize Horton's effeminate, whining, voice from Fractured Fairy Tales and all those Fred Astaire films.) Our story seems to be an early version of the TV show "Bewitched", where hubby is an advertising man, and relies on the wife's quick thinking to save him. When one of the products they are involved with causes a major crisis, they must figure out a solution quickly before the newspapers get there to take pictures. Lucy had been getting starring roles for a few years now, and she does just fine in this lightweight one. The second half of the picture takes place in a courtroom, and feels like an episode of I Love Lucy (Oh Fred!)...Gene Lockhart is here as Mr. Winterbottom. Also look for a 13 year old Dwayne Hickman (played in his own show "Dobie Gillis") in the laboratory scene. Directed by Sylvan Simon, who died at age 41, just a couple years after this project. No big surprises here, but we get a fun, early look at Lucy being Lucy just a couple years before her TV show.
