Storyline

Needing to fill the position of general manager of his company, and believing that an executive's wife is crucial to her husband's success, auto industry mogul Gifford brings three couples to New York to size up: Jerry and Carol: he hard-driven and self-reliant, she willing to use her beauty to further her husband's career; Sid and Elizabeth, he ulcer-ridden and torn between achieving success and restoring their troubled marriage, she positive that his job will kill him, but gamely agreeing to play the good wife for the duration; and down-to-earth Bill, whose good-natured Katie fears that his promotion would spell the end of their idyllic familiy existence.

Trivia

In Woman's World the connections to automotive companies of the era are both obvious and subtle. The obvious is Ford Motor Company which supplied Fords, Mercurys, Lincolns, "Dream Cars", and styling models for the film. There are even scenes of the Ford test track in Dearborn, Michigan. The subtle is the company name Gifford Motors close to General Motors; GM. Also many shots of the New York skyline feature the Chrysler Building. See more »

Goofs

When we first see the new Gifford black convertible, actually the Ford X-100, in the lobby of the Gifford building the top and side windows are closed. In the next shot they are open and the occupant closes them, supposedly at the first drop of rain. See more »

Wonderfully entertaining
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WOMANS'S WORLD cries out for a DVD transfer. When will it be? It has everything a Fox film of the 50's had. CinemaScope, color, stereo sound, all star cast, New York settings and a sensational musical score. The seven stars really shine here. Clifton Webb is .. well Clifton Webb and does his Clifton Web to the hilt. The men Cornel Wilde; Fred MacMurray and Van Heflin couldn't be better. The women are even better. Lauren Bacall is her usual sophisticated self and is at her best, even better than in HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE. June Allyson is a delight as the not-so-in with it wife, and Arlene Dahl steals the show with her red hair and ample figure. Although I think Marilyn Monroe would have really excelled in the role as well. The plot line is fun and quite exciting as to who will be the new general manager of a car company. Who gets the job and why is a nice twist. So come on Fox, get this on DVD...NOW.
